October 2014 Employee of the Month

Terry Mendez

Public Works Department

For the month of October, Department Directors have selected Terry Mendez as the City of Porterville’s employee of the month.  Terry began working for the City of Porterville in October of 2000 at the Wastewater Treatment Facility as a Clerical Assistant I and was promoted to a Clerical Assistant II in 2004. She is the sole clerical support person for the entire Treatment Facility and she adeptly keeps the flow of the office humming along. 

Terry is in charge of gathering data and preparing monthly and quarterly reports that are submitted to the California Regional Water Quality Control Board. The Wastewater Operators rely on her knowledge to order not only routine maintenance material and parts, but they also rely on her purchasing experience in ordering specialized equipment.  She is in charge of booking tours of the Treatment plant and enjoys seeing children react to the different smells and reach realization of what wastewater really is.  She is very polite and professional when speaking on the phone or when greeting people in person in her office. She is great at helping others in her office troubleshoot problems or questions that deal with any of the programs in Microsoft Windows.  She can always be counted on to complete a task that is given to her with a smile.

Terry is married to John and together they have 3 children: Isaac who is 20, Analiesa who is 18, and Isabella who is 15.  Terry enjoys reading, shopping, spending time with her family and getting together with her two closest friends that she has had since the first grade.   But most specially, she likes to go to live tapings of shows in Hollywood and she has been to the Jay Leno Show, The Conan Show and, most recently, The Voice.
