Gilbert Cauron, Week of June 28, 2010
Gilbert Cuaron, a city security guard, was off duty when he noticed a woman standing alone on the corner of Marquette Ave. looking distraught. Cuaron approached the woman and asked if there was a problem. The woman, a city employee, left her parking card in her car in the Compass Bank parking garage and was locked out. It was a Friday evening and her car was going to be locked in the garage all weekend long. Cuaron made a few phone calls but was unable to find anyone to help. He then went to the bank and banged on the door until the janitor came. The janitor’s supervisor informed the woman that he would only let her in if Cuaron would accompany her to her car. Cuaron did indeed take the woman down to her car. Before the woman dropped Cuaron back off at city hall he apologized for his hands being a dirty. He had just finished helping a lady fix her tire. Cuaron's dedication to his job does not go unnoticed. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help to women in need. Gilbert Cuaron is retiring this week and will be greatly missed. He is the type of employee we should all strive to be.
