Cristina Cortez, Custodial Worker II, Elko Campus:
"She always does a wonderful job keeping our buildings clean, she takes care in what she does and does it with a smile. She is friendly and ALWAYS has a positive attitude. Our buildings and grounds staff are the most unappreciated members of our staff, yet they are the one's who work the hardest with the least amount of glory."
Sandy Cortes, Admissions and Records Assistant III, Elko Campus:
"She is unfailingly polite, and she goes out of her way to answer any question or resolve any problem."
Dori Andrepont, Administrative Assistant III, Math and Science, Elko Campus:
"Not only has Dori streamlined the Science and Math department classes (and their labs) and excelled at her individual position, but she has also taken on huge projects outside of it. Dori took all of the support staff recommendations for our manual, proofread it, and made a concise and consistent document for easy reference for years to come. She has also started tackling the intimidating task of room assignments when the support staff vacated that high demand job duty. Dori is a well respected voice on our campus, and at our centers, with co-workers, administration and faculty, and has excelled in her position as Co-Chair of Classified Staff. She does all of this while maintaining a professional and friendly manner, willing to help whomever needs it."
Joe Micke, Security Officer, Safety and Security, Elko Campus
"Joe Micke is tasked with dealing with some of the unpleasantries of education - so that the rest of us don't have to. Joe works hard at keeping the peace around campus, and always does so with a positive and energetic attitude. In addition to his dedication at keeping GBC safe for students, faculty, and staff, Joe was also instrumental in forming the Battle Born Veterans' Club and works at ensuring that our vets are aware of the resources available to them. Because of his involvement in the BBVC, Joe is a positive representation of GBC in our community. GBC is lucky to have Joe onboard."
