WCC Recognizes Top Employees

Wayne Community College has recognized its top employees for 2017.

Linda Wooten, a housekeeper, was presented the Operational and Maintenance Staff Employee of the Year Award. She was described as being “a humble employee who has been a positive influence for Wayne Community College,” and “able to establish rapport quickly and easily whether dealing with students, faculty, staff, or visitors.”

Pre-Curriculum Achievement Coach and Stairway to Success Director Lisa Taylor was named the Professional Employee of the Year. She was lauded for investing herself in each student, always being happy to see her students, listening when there’s a problem, and encouraging them “because giving up is not an option.”

Dr. Shirley Boyd is the recipient of the Adjunct Faculty of the Year Award. Dr. Boyd retired as the college’s vice president for academic affairs in 1994 after working for the college for 23 years but came back to teach math. It was noted that, “She knows all the ropes. She performs her duties with a candor unmatched by others.”

Purchasing/Equipment Director Assistant Faye Best earned the Professional Support Staff of the Year Award. She is also a WCC retiree, having put in 33 years in the Agriculture and Natural Resources Program, but she returned to the college in 2010. It was noted that “her character, commitment, and dedication stand out above all others.”

Honorees are nominated by their peers and selected by an outside committee based on initiative, enthusiasm, expertise, leadership, professionalism, productivity, creativity, involvement, and dedication. Each receives a plaque and a stipend provided by the Foundation of Wayne Community College.
