Employee of the Month
December 2019 – Jennifer McManus
As the administrative assistant in the Adult Education office, Jennifer McManus is the first point of contact for visitors in that office. Her work ranges from handling incoming calls and inputting data entry to getting her colleagues in the holiday spirit by decorating the office for the season. And while this work often pulls her in many directions, Jennifer always manages to provide exceptional service with a smile. For this, Jennifer McManus has been named the December Employee of the Month at College of the Mainland.
For the past four years, Jennifer has played an important role for the Adult Education program. She reviews and gathers documents for program audits, handles all conference and travel reservations and assists adjuncts with their respective needs. While this work often keeps her behind the scenes, it does not go unnoticed by her colleagues and those around her.
“She takes the time to actively listen to every student in order to direct them to the correct person or department,” her nominator said. “Her interactions and commitment to student success is an asset to the Adult Education program.”
