Tina Torquato has been the well-rounded utility infielder and go-to employee for many projects at the Office of Public Safety and Emergency Management.
This past year, Tina has served as assistant to Vice Chancellor Ted Fritz while also managing the front desk duties at the Jerome Cochran Public Safety Building, where she always greets workers and visitors with a smile.
Additionally, she has helped track COVID statistics on a weekly basis, she manages many complex schedules, she has learned new responsibilities in assisting the police, and she has assisted senior staff like our Emergency Coordinator Bob Chamberlain. On top of all of this, she assisted Assistant Vice Chancellor Jay Frerotte while he searched for his own assistant.
Tina Torquato was named Employee of the Quarter. With her is Ted Fritz, the Vice Chancellor of Public Safety and Emergency Management.
Tina volunteers as the United Way point person for Public Safety and helps with Arrival Survival. If you need a volunteer, Tina is your person. If you need someone to talk to, Tina is your person.
Most of all Tina has brought a smile and a positive attitude to the building, and to Pitt, as she serves others. Tina is a great role model for all of us and for all of these reasons is well-deserving of this quarter’s award.
Thank you, Tina!
