JASPER, Ind. – Three members of Ruxer Ford Lincoln’s staff earned high-level Employee Excellence Awards again this year from Ford Motor Company.

Sales Consultant Ron Otto, Service Manager Keith Knies and Internet Sales Manager Jake Bower each received Level 3 Employee Excellence Awards from Ford, which recognizes top service and sales performers annually nationwide. The three Ruxer recipients have earned the award multiple times.

The number one measured factor for achieving Ford’s Level 3 certification is customer satisfaction. Ford employees who reach Level 3 also must distinguish themselves as a leader among their peers; achieve a strong record of success in their work; and demonstrate the desire to continue improving their job performance.

“We have so many excellent employees who’ve built long-lasting relationships with customers who come back to Ruxer for years,” Doug Abbett comments. “It’s the service and workmanship they consistently give – Ruxer’s greatest assets. We’re proud of all our employees’ accomplishments.”

As many of you have heard the video of the Jenny sinking after winning the Holy Family Cardboard Boat Regatta was selected by America’s Funniest Home Videos for their October 30th, 2011 show.  At this point in time it appears the video is going to make it to the show.  But it isn’t set in stone.  It is subject to change.  Stay tuned to the paper and this site and we will let you know if they are going to get a taste of Jasper on the show.  As a crew member of the ill-fated Jenny I look forward to having millions laugh at me.  Plus as a dad and this being one of my kid’s favorite shows, I look forward to the moment when the kids will see dear old dad’s ego getting dropped down a notch.  I look forward to keeping everyone up to date on this.  Who would have thought that a few months ago when we were cutting out cardboard this is where we would end up.
