    The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control recently named local employee Wendy Mayberry as its employee of the quarter, out of the departments approximately 650 employees statewide. Mayberry was rewarded with a plaque and performance bonus.

    Mayberry has been at the Moab store for five years and is currently its assistant manager. Her manager, Stephanie Zimmerman, said she is an “indispensable part of the team, bringing leadership and a positive attitude to all employees of the store, as well as customers.”

    A department spokesperson, Terry Wood, said in a statement that Mayberry “showed her dedication” by, during the peak spring season, working 10 to 15 hours of overtime per week when the store was short-staffed by two full-time employees.

    “She made every personal sacrifice necessary to achieve customer satisfaction and success for the store,” Wood said of Mayberry. “She even brought food for her coworkers and sometimes even clothing to help meet the needs of the staff.”

    The ABC department announced the award in a congratulatory video, showing Zimmerman presenting Mayberry with her certificate by surprise. She said Mayberry “goes above and beyond” in her duties and sets a “great example to all others” who work with her.

    “I couldn’t do it without all you guys,” she told her coworkers in the video.
