Aiken Technical College Announces Its Employees of the Year

Aiken Technical College has announced its 2019-2020 Employees of the Year.

“As we begin a new academic year, it is a great time to reflect on what has been accomplished and recognize employees for their efforts and dedication to furthering the mission of the College,” said ATC President Dr. Forest Mahan. “Despite this year’s challenges, our Employees of the Year continue to strive for excellence in their work. Our honorees are to be commended and celebrated.”

The Employees of the Year are nominated by their peers and selected by an appointed committee.

The Faculty Member of the Year is Roshelle Jones. She has been employed at the College for nearly 10 years and serves as a psychology instructor and campus advisor for the Call Me Mister program.

Nominations highlighted Jones’s commitment to students’ success. She often connects students with campus resources and encourages students to stay determined in reaching their goals.

Jones is also active in the community. For several years, she has hosted workshops to help high school students and their families prepare for college. For the past two years, she has partnered with the College to host a similar college prep seminar.

“It is a blessing to be recognized out of so many wonderful faculty members. Knowing that I am a small part in a student’s professional journey towards success is just amazing,” said Jones. “I am truly grateful and thankful for this recognition and honored to work here.”

The Staff Member of the Year is Sherry Robbins, an accounting specialist in the Administrative Services division. She has been employed with the College for nine years.

“I am grateful to receive the Employee of the Year Award for the staff category. While there are so many others that deserve this recognition, I am thankful that my hard work and dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed,” said Robbins. “I work with some pretty amazing people. It gives me great pride to be a part of the Aiken Technical College team, and I am honored to receive this award.”

Nominations praised Robbins’s willingness to help others. While learning new responsibilities, Robbins  assisted in other areas of the division, such as The Hub, the College’s bookstore.

She also provides suggestions for improving processes and continuously incorporates best practices to improve efficiency.

Jones and Robbins will each receive a plaque and a $500 check from the ATC Foundation to recognize their service to the College.
