Classified Staff In-Service Day

On behalf of the Classified Training and Development Committee, we invite all classified staff to a workshop focused on the importance of student completion and how non-faculty members can play a role in assisting students towards that goal. February 7, 2019 will feature two options for attending this workshop: 9a-10:30a and 1-2:30pm (supervisors: make note that, while areas should remain open, employees should be given the time to attend one session). Below is a little bit of information about our day’s facilitator, Erin Jones!

Erin Jones

Erin Jones has been involved in and around schools for the past 26 years. She has taught in a variety of environments, from predominantly Black to predominantly White to some of the most diverse communities in the nation. Erin received an award as the Most Innovative Foreign Language Teacher in 2007, while working in Tacoma and was the Washington State Milken Educator of the Year in 2008, while teaching in Spokane. In March of 2013, the White House recognized her as a “Champion of Change” and she received Washington State PTA’s “Outstanding Educator” award in 2015. In 2016, Erin ran as a candidate for State Superintendent (the first black woman to run for any state office in WA), a race she lost by a mere 1%.

Winter In-Service Day (Save the date)

Winter In-Service day (February 7, 2019) is coming right up! We hope you’ll make a note in your calendars and keep the below information in mind:Reminder

For the Winter In-Service Day (07 February 2019), Green River College will be closed to the public.  There are no classes that day so that faculty may participate in divisional in-service activities.  We are closing to the public so that classified staff may attend sessions with a speaker (details pending) as they did last year.  Additionally, the exempt staff will have an in-service opportunity this year.

If you have any questions about the closure to the public, please contact your manager.  If you have any questions about the content of the in-service day, please stand by as instructional divisions and the committees (CSTDC and ESTDC) are currently planning the sessions.

GRC Service Awards Recap

On Thursday, September 20, we celebrated 83 faculty and staff service anniversaries. Besides the incredible number of honorees, this year’s awards were notable for another reason: we presented them on their own day during opening week. This gave us an opportunity to include the entire board of trustees as well as giving our honorees an even that was entirely dedicated to them. We’ve included a few photos of some of this year’s winners along with the full listings below!

Thank you to our recipients for your years of service to education! Thanks, as well, to the Conference Services and Media Services crews for helping make this year’s event truly memorable.
