Michelle Maciszewski, SCC

I had the pleasure of having Michelle as a student before she worked for me.  In the classroom, she is an ideal student.  As someone who works for me, I am continually impressed.  Specifically, I am having Michelle do a lot of research (for courses I'm teaching and for committees I serve on) and she is not only efficient, but more importantly, she brings the same care to doing research for me that she would were she working on one of her essays.  Michelle's quality of work is outstanding.  I've had several solid work study students before, but Michelle stands heads and shoulders above the rest.  She is precise, pays meticulous attention to details, and seems to genuinely enjoy what she does.  She is punctual and I've asked her to juggle several semester long projects and she's handled everything with grace and ease.  Michelle absolutely exceeded expectations without a doubt!!  Michelle also serves on SGA and is a stellar student.  Were I able to have more students like Michelle who are engaged, responsible and who continually demonstrated strong leadership abilities…

Christina Scott-Ford, PDC

Christina possesses a comprehensive knowledge of all library functions assigned to a FWS worker, and she has taken it upon herself to go beyond the requirements of an FWS worker by pitching in to learn many of the responsibilities of regular library staff members as well.  Christina does excellent, fast work with a minimum of mistakes.  In the 1.5 years that she has been with us she has really perfected her skill-level at performing all of her job functions.  Christina is very dependable (which is crucial to our department due to our minimal staffing).  She never misses her scheduled work shift, and she has always been willing to change her schedule to accommodate departmental needs as they arise.  Additionally, we have the utmost confidence in her work, and we can rely on her doing the job correctly the first time.  By taking it upon herself to learn more than only those requirements of her job, Christina has been able to excel at problem-solving and troubleshooting for our students, faculty, and community members when situations occur that are out of the ordinary.   Christina is highly active in NPC student/community life.  She is a member of the Eagle Club, the All-Arizona Academic Team and Phi Theta Kappa.  She appeared on the cover of the Spring 2014 college schedule.  Through her involvements in NPC activities she has become something of a role-model for other students.   She also has frequently recommended to both interested students and non-students that they meet with an NPC advisor or faculty member in order to get guidance regarding their educational and career interests.  More than once, this has resulted in individuals signing up for NPC classes and taking the initial steps toward fulfilling their goals in life.  Christina has become an indispensable part of the library team and the NPC student body.
