January President's Coin Honorees 04-Feb-2015 Pat Muntz:
Pat works daily with a very challenging group of students and that number is only growing. She has become a confidant and resource for many of our professors and has worked a wide range of hours to keep the success center open during hours that student need it to be. She has also offered her classes in multiple sections to make more room for students without compensation. We appreciate all that Pat does to help our students become more successful.
Carolyn Nelson: Carolyn always comes in early to work, often stays late, goes above and beyond her job to not only do a good job, but looks for ways to help others succeed. Carolyn has been a positive influence in the Development & Alumni Relations Offices and has been a key to the success we have seen thus far – mass mailings, segmenting phone calls and understanding who needs to be touched by our office in a positive way. Carolyn would never pat herself on her back and sound her own horn, but the fact is she is an intelligent and faith filled employee of CCC who has given a significant portion of her life in serving the College.
Financial Aid Team (Nichole Carver, Whitney Cumpston, Lyndsi Romero):
These ladies have been dedicated to a process that has been derailed multiple times from the loss of a director, transition in software, and loss of a staff member. In the meantime, the number of students they are working with increases by approximately 75-100 people every six weeks. During this time, they have taken work home, come in extra hours and, in some cases, shouldered the load often carried by others. Because of their tireless efforts, we are nearly caught up on 6 months-worth of backlogged data and have even operationalized early FA disbursements starting this month. Major kudos!
