CENIC Star Michael Gong

CENIC is pleased to name Network Engineer Michael Gong the CENIC Outstanding Achievement Awardee for the Month of January 2016.

Michael is a network engineer in CENIC’s Operations group, a position he did not stumble upon randomly. Through a friend who was an employee at CENIC, Mike learned about the organization’s work and vision and made it his mission to work for CENIC. He was hired in October 2011 and has been a stellar employee ever since. 

In addition to his day-to-day responsibilities, Mike has made notable contributions in several important areas to improve CENIC's operational capabilities, including optical tools development, CAMEL documentation, the development of case studies, and by developing a new deployment process for libraries.

For the last four years, Mike has continually worked to enhance his technical skills and consistently sought to utilize his broader set of skills in innovative ways to benefit the Operations team and the organization. Thanks, Mike!
