PSC honors Employees of the Year

Unsung hero… Outstanding work ethics… Huge heart for students…

These were just a few of the comments describing Pensacola State College’s three Employees of the Year – Mary Graves, Diana Taylor and Scott Russell – at a festive ceremony in the new Charles W. Lamar Studio, July 25.

Colleagues, friends and family filled the Studio’s spacious lecture hall as PSC President Ed Meadows called attention to the accomplishments of each honoree and the importance of the annual event that began in 1975.

“CAEOP began this awards ceremony and it has been an anticipated event for more than 40 years. When CAEOP could no longer host the ceremony, it was just too important to let it drop,” Dr. Meadows said. “We are grateful that our Human Resources department is continuing this tradition.”

June Talent of the Month

Kristen Kuykendall has been selected as the Kelly Services Talent of the Month for June.
Kuykendall is the administrative assistant in Pensacola State College’s maintenance department. She joined the college family about four months ago.

The former Minnesota resident said the accolade was totally unexpected.

“It’s kind of awesome! I wasn’t expecting it and didn’t even know they did it.” She said. “This was a very nice surprise.”

Meet Monique Collins, assistant dean of student services

Dr. Monique Collins’ life mission is to ensure Pensacola State College students are successful. She joined the Pensacola State family in 2001 as an academic advisor. Dr. Collins is now the college’s Assistant Dean of Student Services and supervises student registration and retention.

“The ultimate reward in my job is seeing students and their families at commencement. I have helped many of them personally over the years – so I have watched them grow. So, to see them basking in the excitement of graduation is always the ultimate reward for me,” she said.

An advocate of state and community colleges, Dr. Collins said the institutions are life-changing.
