Ogeechee Tech Celebrates Thanksgiving, Names Support Staff of the Year

Ogeechee Technical College recently celebrated Thanksgiving with a luncheon for employees at the College’s Occupational Studies Multi-purpose Room.  Faculty, staff, and administration joined together for the luncheon at which Mrs. Connie Hendrix, Administrative Assistant to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, was named the recipient of the Support Staff of the Year Award for 2007/2008.  In making the presentation of the award Dr. Dawn Cartee, President of Ogeechee Tech, highlighted the importance of all support staff in the operation of the College.  She called on a number of individuals who expressed their views about the vital part support staff members play in the successful day to day functions of the College.  “Every aspect of the operation of this campus is touched by support staff—whether in the preparation of reports, the selling of textbooks, the maintenance of a clean and safe environment, the timely paying of accounts, and so much more—everything we do here is impacted in an important way by the people we call support staff,” commented Cartee.

In describing Connie Hendrix’s contribution to the College, Cartee read from Hendrix’s nomination form, “She is always pleasant and helpful whenever something is needed.  She always has a good attitude even when she is under stress.  She is a hard worker and is always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done.”  Hendrix was chosen from a total of 10 nominees by a selection committee which utilized a defined process for determining the annual Support Staff Award winner.  Aside from the recognition at the luncheon, Hendrix was presented a check from the Ogeechee Tech Foundation, Inc., a personal plaque, recognition on a permanent plaque located on campus, and a parking space of her choice on campus for a year.
