Chamber Honors V. Thomas Dock as Outstanding Public Employee
Dr. V. Thomas Dock, dean of the College of Business, received the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce 2010 Outstanding Public Employee of the Year award at the chamber's annual meeting April 20. In the photo at right, Dock receives his award from Bob McCoy (center), chamber president, and Pete Farrow (right), past chair of the chamber's board of directors.
"Tom was selected as the outstanding public employee by the chamber for 2010 because he went above and beyond his role as dean of the UW-Eau Claire College of Business to reach out to the business community to assist in the chamber’s Business Council, partnership breakfasts with the chamber and other events not only with the chamber but with other entities in Eau Claire," McCoy said. "He truly felt it was not only an opportunity but a great benefit to both the university and the chamber for him to share his talents, and we have all benefited from that."
