Waves of Gratitude for Linda Mickleberry. Linda has been making a ton of forms for the college to make sure staff coming onto campus are safe and students are able to get their needs met. She always has a positive attitude and demonstrates an ethic of care about all those connected to Shoreline. She is quick to reply and get things done. Recognized by Jenna Durney-Schlein.

Waves of Gratitude for Donna Langley. Donna has been incredible to work with in helping students work through tricky situations to get financial aid awarded. I had one student who needed some extra documentation and she worked really close with me to make sure this student understood what needed to be submitted. While it took a little while on the students’ end to get all the paperwork in order, Donna was always quick to respond, positive and committed to student success. She even found a colleague to help translate if need be! From her efforts, we were able to award the student over $2000 in financial aid and made it so this student was not sent to collections! Recognized by Jenna Durney-Schlein.

Waves of Gratitude for Linda Mickleberry for Inclusive Excellence, Student Engagement, and Smooth operations of the college during this time of remote learning and remote services. Linda has been working diligently behind the scenes for years keeping our online forms via Formstack, and databases working efficiently. Her work has been even more important during campus remote operations in 2020 and now going forward into 2021!

She helps staff create online input forms for students, staff, and the community to troubleshoot these forms when there are problems and always has ideas for you to make them more effective and clear for students and the community to use. Linda has a very professional and positive attitude, and is a pleasure to work with! Recognized by Suzanne Gugger.

Waves of Gratitude for the Custodial, Landscaping, and Facilities crew for Community Engagement. The Facilities, day and evening custodial crew and landscaping staff have been doing an exemplary job sprucing up the campus. The green spaces look tidy and refreshed, and Tony has been pressure washing every inch of our campus sidewalks, breezeways and courtyards. Facilities have fixed potholes and courtyard cracks, and completed many capital/maintenance projects on campus. Michelle and her evening custodial crew have been sanitizing and deep cleaning all of the buildings. John Nold (temporary daytime custodial) has steam cleaned so many chairs and upholstery in all of the buildings and he created an amazing video for the classified staff meeting that documented all of the staff working on campus! Thank you to all of the staff working so hard on campus these days. Recognized by Suzanne Gugger.
