strong man stumbled where the doer of deeds could have done them better the credible ons to the man who was
actually in the arena whose faces marred by dust and sweat and
blood who strives valiantly who cares incomes of short again and again who knows the great enthusiasms the
great devotion who spends himself in a worthy cause what the best knows in the in the crime
fighting the worst if he fails at least fails to appear in great his place shall never be with those
students loans medically trained gary’s still ahead head hostess america let’s not in the headlines euros the
everyday folks live and die and then leave their dreams as legacy the ho the hyannis with cigarettes u i think they are two things that come to
mind one was that gets a chance to recognize people that we work with day-in and day
out not so much for what they do and for their content expertise and for
the contributions that they make to the community but i think it’s more about how they do
what they do it’s their kindness it’s their smile it’s their willingness to go the extra
step or even the extra mile get the working to support their
colleagues and to be with them wonderful to be knowledge for what you
do and i think in this world it’s sometimes
something that we fail to do often enough it’s also a chance for colleagues to say
to the people that they work with everyday we really appreciate what you
do hand dot so i think this is such an important tradition i’ve been fortunate enough to the involved in this for the last twelve
years and i’ve been able to see all the notifications for the last twelve years and to see the shit the joy in surprise
on the basis of those who’ve been selected is is worth everything so i am honored to have been a recipient
of this award somebody said so where is your award
hain it hangs right next to my desk and i
literally look up at it every day and it reminds me that it’s not just enough to do the work there’s people every day and you have to
be gracious unkind to them as well so i’m honored to have been a part of
this whole process and i congratulate all the recipients today i want to talk about how would be idea
of the award came about and this is my recollection title tonight bob sanders and a group of us i was in
student activities at the time i thought it would be good too lab honor people went above and beyond
in their job in the community and so we formed a committee you developed the concept of outstanding
colleagues and we call the colleague because we want to do include the entire
campus not the faculty nazareth everybody and so from that a valve that twenty
five-year uh… relationship between the mommy
city council nation find that the grant and the outstanding colleague committee it’s kinda funny when i was star invited
the x_ become remember i was surprised this is their practice and i did said and number of times to
snyder my secretary that oh i’ll never get this award is

later feel bored with still be in place in so many wonderful people would have been
recognized we wanted to make sure that people who quietly go over it about
doing a good job at the college were recognize of lots of times there are certain people who stand out and everybody knows about and
there are other people who just do their job everyday and aren’t always so in the limelight i think most of us who work here see
every day that in small ways and enlarge ways we

faulty outstanding colleagues never had the opportunity to be honored as one of those who were i a i’d feel
privileged i feel humbled i feel part of the team actually because
even though there are a number of us who seem to be visible you get some of this recognition there’s
really a whole lot of folks we work with who go unnoticed and those are the individuals i think
about when i think about outstanding colleagues they’re the ones cut in the
yards they’re the ones the middle of my
cleaner classrooms there’s the instructors and classified
staff who do they’re great jobs with our students but the thing that i appreciate
his outstanding colleague to me means all of us it means all of us who work as
a team to do the best we can for our students to me that’s outstanding i did and let you know that when i found

part of the proceedings too eva high in the lectern and to look out on the graduating students the faculty and then to look up and to

little bit about the of is the killers mark taylor nine of carter that since we
first got to get a chance to work with her about four years ago we were hosting a large events at the
pacific coast campus and that’s just something one must remember an attempt
to do without the keys expertise so his bizarre rina title has just kind of cut
on vicki’s not easy to overlook she’s got
an infectious laugh in a wicked sense of humor and a passion from she does her
father val infact it’s been a long beach city councilman in vice mayor but he’s
better known as vicky step so if you’ve ever call the office of the
associate vice president at the pacific coast campus or if you’ve ever needed
anything done and done right at pcc you probably have been dealt with vicki watching her in action balancing a
variety of request made upon her and see how she balances it with a sense of
pride and professionalism is really impressive she’s the spirit of laughter that is in
trouble to what makes up pcc such a nice place to work notice those who transferred
embarrassingly over from l_a_ cpcc they limit their defined a sense of
support my family in total commitment to the success of our students so as her boss doctor by andrea lynn
says became bodies the sense of support and
family feeling that pcc is known to have she has the type of loyalty they can
either be taught nor trained so other colleagues comments on her
compassion picture feliz the ways you practically always has the answer to
your question and with that goes a smile never making you feel like an idiot is
mary bradford sent and her willingness to help out is
appreciated by so many of us personally i rely on vicki all the time is both a
colleague and friend when the marquees are ready to go up a
few months ago i fretted about how it how would fit programming both of them
on each campus stepped in czarina and when i needed an extra pray driver
on a saturday night she didn’t hesitate hesitate for a second she does that
