Extra Effort & Team Effort Awards – May 28, 2021

Debbie Rulo, Director, Continuing Education Business Development/Partnerships
Liz Loomis, Administrative Assistant Assess/Eval/Instl

– Nominated by Staff Shared Governance Task Force

For the past few months, the Staff Shared governance Task Force has been working on development of the committee purpose, by-laws, and procedures.  Debbie and Liz have devoted many hours leading the task force.  This not only included scheduling and leading meetings, organizing files, and documenting activity as we went through the process, but also included presenting in front of cabinet and meeting separately with team members and leaders on campus.  They have done an excellent job moving this committee forward.

Moving forward, the virtual Extra Effort Awards will be announced bi-weekly.  The virtual Extra Effort Award nomination form can be found at https://blogs.jccc.edu/staffdev/awards/extra-effort/

Accomplishment:

On Tuesday, April 20th, OCB 261 & 272 flooded due to construction above them on OCB 3. Many of the faculty offices were near an inch deep in water. Due to our team’s quick action of removing wet furniture, extracting the water from the carpet, placing high air volume fans and dehumidifiers, the carpet was dry the next morning. The team then replaced the furniture and put up the equipment.

Team Effort Award:

Congratulations!  To the following group who were nominated for a Team Effort Award! 

Your team was nominated by Kim Manifold and is made up of the following people:

Nico Attanasio, Student Support Technology Lead, Client Support Services
Chris Graessle, Technology Support Technician, Client Support Services
Ryan McGowan, Technology Support Technician, Client Support Services
Mark Barbosa, Supervisor Technology Support Center, Client Support Services
Kathryn Douglas, Student Support Technician, Client Support Services
Nathan George, Student Support Technician, Client Support Services
Robin Judkins, Senior Net. Analyst /Unified Comm, Network & Data Center Operations

Accomplishment:

In April, the Technical Support Center (Nico, Chris, Ryan, Mark, Kathryn, and Nathan) assisted students with late evening enrollment for the Summer and Fall semesters. The team assisted students with technical support needs between 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. as students prepared for open enrollment at 9:00 p.m. and throughout the first thirty minutes of enrollment to ensure a great start for enrollment activities and example of teamwork across IS to help students succeed at JCCC. And of course, none of this would be possible without Robin Judkins, who had to manually set the call queue to reopen at the appropriate times.

Ties in with JCCC Strategic Goals(s):

Student Success: The comprehensive programs and services at JCCC are aligned to help students reach their diverse educational goals. The College seeks to identify each student’s educational intent and develop pathways for success. Credit and non-credit programs are aligned for transfer, entry into the workforce, or personal interest. Support services are relevant to the evolving needs of students.

Strategy 1: Success Model JCCC enhances a student success model, designed around determining students’ intent when entering the College, with strategies to promote success along the student’s journey
