Tech/Innovation: Ashley Byrd, Information Technology (KCIT)

This award is for recognizing the creative use of technology or innovations in reaching employees. Ashley built and maintained the auction site SharePoint for KCIT, BRC and the Assessor’s Office throughout last year’s annual giving drive. Additionally, her love of SharePoint helped the program develop a much more robust Ambassador dashboard and gamified Ambassador development program. She showed dedication and great tech savvy to keep that going. Awesome job Ashley!
