Employee of the Month

Donnetta Iven


Donnetta Iven, Administrative Office Support Assistant for the Veterans Homes Program, was selected as the October 2014 Missouri Veterans Commission Employee of the Month.

Donnetta was nominated by her peers and selected because of her willingness to go above and beyond when she took on the task of updating an outdated Fleet Management System for the Homes Program. Her organizational skills enabled her to find the time over a several week period to work on this while also keeping up her other duties.

Donnetta was required to learn the Fleet Management System through interaction with the state fleet manager and coordinate her efforts collaboratively with central office purchasing. In addition, the task required Donnetta to assemble several months of historical data in order to ascertain a starting point for the project and ultimately bring all records up to current status. This project took countless hours of effort over a multiple week period of time and Donnetta's determination to complete the task was unwavering.

While employed with the Missouri Veterans Commission Donnetta has day after day exemplified true dedication to the Commission's Mission Statement of honoring and serving our Veterans. She is a true role model for all Commission staff.

Donnetta’s dedication for those we serve reflects well on the Commission as a whole and on herself in particular.

Donnetta will be honored October 7, 2014 at the Annual Veterans Homes Conference in Springfield, Missouri.

Congratulations Donnetta!
