From Sharon Bland, J.D., CPM, Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer:
Administrative professionals are the glue that keeps our divisions running smoothly—thank you so much for all you do!
From Dr. Monica R.M. Brown, Senior Vice President for Student Affairs:
The outstanding administrative staff at Montgomery College are an elite core group of individuals who serve with honor and distinction. Thank you for all you do to make us better!
From Vicki Duggan, M.S., CCEP Chief Compliance, Risk, and Ethics Officer:
Administrative professionals—VIPs (very important people) in any team!
From Dr. John Hamman, Interim Chief Analysis Officer:
Montgomery College is fortunate to be able to attract many talented professionals, but nowhere is this more obvious and important than among our administrative professionals. I have had the pleasure to work with truly amazing and dedicated individuals in these roles and am filled with gratitude for the work they put in every day.
From Dr. Kim Kelley, Vice President/Provost, Collegewide ABEESS Unit and Rockville Campus:
The administrative support staff are the critical piece in the MC “puzzle.” Without them, the puzzle remains unfinished, the picture isn’t clear, and completion remains elusive. With the administrative support staff, the critical piece(s) comes together, the picture is beautiful, and there is a sense of satisfaction and completion. We need our administrative support staff! No matter where we are, they are the critical piece of the puzzle that makes everything come together.
From Margaret W. Latimer, Vice President/Provost, Collegewide STEM Unit and Germantown Campus:
I work with the most phenomenal administrative professionals (Tonya, Nicole, Melanie). What these colleagues do in a week’s work in a day! They make me look so much better than I am. Their professionalism, knowledge, and skill sets are on display every minute of the day. They are the face of the College to the public and to our students and colleagues. I am proud to work with such amazing professionals.
From Dr. Tonya R. Mason, Collegewide Dean of Student Success and Rockville Student Affairs:
I am so thankful for the fabulous support I receive from senior administrative aide, Nancy Han. She is organized, responsive, and she anticipates my needs before I do!
From Dr. Sanjay Rai, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs:
Our administrative support staff have always been critical to MC’s mission, but their contributions during the pandemic have shown that they are central to our success. I am most sincerely grateful for their efforts.
From Dr. Michelle T. Scott, Deputy Chief of Staff and Strategy, Office of the President:
Our administrative support staff have always been critical to MC’s mission, and their contributions during the pandemic continues to demonstrate they are central to our success. I am most sincerely grateful for their efforts.
From Dr. Tracey Smith-Bryant, Interim Department Chair, Psychology Coordinator, and Professor:
Like a lighthouse, our administrative aides (AA) stand ready to assist the College community. AAs remind all of us to stay on the path with the correct forms, deadlines, and all the names that we forget with the warning that we will crash on the rocks should we not follow their guidance. They save us at the darkest moments and they are beautiful reminders that we need not worry when we are away. AAs are the rock and the light! I am going to shout out Joan Rozario who is an amazing miracle worker and whose grace and poise are beyond her years!
From Dr. Brad Stewart, Vice President/Provost, Collegewide CHSHPEH Unit and Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus:
Many thanks to all of our wonderful administrative support staff during these challenging times. It’s never been more clear how important you all are to all of MC!
