NATIONAL TEMPORARY EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR NAMED

 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharon Minton of Louisville, Ky., was chosen as "National Temporary Employee of the Year" in conjunction with National Temporary Help Week, Oct. 3-9, 1993.
 Minton has worked, on and off, as a temporary employee since 1973 and has accepted assignments of all different durations -- from one day to several months. She feels that "as a temporary, I'm more appreciated at the client sites than many of the full-time positions I've held."
 Minton is currently using the flexibility that temporary employment supplies to substitute teach in the local public school system and to work on obtaining her teaching certificate from the University of Louisville. Her goal is to become a full-time teacher some day. In addition to being a volunteer mentor at the University of Louisville to encourage high school students to pursue higher education, she is currently tutoring a 30-year-old mother of two who hopes to obtain the G.E.D. certificate.
 As the national winner, Minton was awarded two round-trip tickets courtesy of Delta Air Lines.
 The week, created by the Alexandria-based National Association of Temporary Services (NATS), acknowledges the temporary help industry as a growing and diversified segment of the American work force and recognizes that it provides labor market flexibility for employers to adjust to changing economic conditions. Moreover, according to Samuel R. Sacco, executive vice president of NATS, "The week is a salute to those important people who contribute to the growing excellence of the industry: the temporary employees of America."
