DAFVM Spotlight Employee: Steven Felston
Steven Felston loves interacting with people and helping them solve problems on a daily basis. So his work in the Delta Research and Extension Center’s Communications Department fits him well.
Steven helps with logistics and set-up for the many meetings hosted at the center, including distance education video conferences. He also assists with building and grounds support and maintenance. He has enjoyed accepting the new challenges that have come about during his 16-year employment in Stoneville.
“I’ve always been interested in ag research and problem solving,” Steven said. “My recent move to the Communications Department has given me new ways to learn and continued opportunities for growth. I hope all of my colleagues consider me a resource for any type of problem or situation. My bottom line is making their jobs and work environment easier, positive and safe.”
During his career, Steven has gained appreciation for the most important traits required for success in his line of work.
“Be positive and solution-based,” he said. “Always lend a hand, no matter the person or situation. Strive for growth, work hard, be respectful, and remember that family and faith are high priorities in life too.”
Steven said he is blessed to have both of his parents still alive and enjoys seeing them nearly every day.
“I am also blessed to have been married to my best friend, Romelda, for nine years,” he said. “Together we have three wonderful children, Alazia, Nikeria and Taureon.” For fun, Steven enjoys basketball and cooking.
