David Vasquez – Employee of the Year


Every year, the Employee of the Month Committee does a wonderful job of collecting nominations, choosing the Employees of the Month, and organizing their awards and recognition.

Over the 2016-2017 academic year, eight classified employees were selected as the Employees of the Month in recognition for their contributions to the campus. Each person was surprised in his/her office by the prize patrol, presented with a plaque and $100, and had their photo displayed on the marquee.

The 2016-2017 Employees of the Month are: David Dluzak, Lori Schlosser, Adele Dick, Pat Frohn, Lori Donohue, David Vasquez, Denise Kahlen, and Sherrill Spencer.

Congratulations to each of you and thank you for the outstanding service you provide to Golden West College and our students.

As you all know, each of the Employees of the Month are eligible for the Employee of the Year award. The campus had the opportunity to vote recently and I am pleased to announce that the 2016-2017 Employee of the Year is David Vasquez.

David serves as the Instructional Associate for Online Instruction. He has been instrumental in our transition from Blackboard to Canvas. He has gone above and beyond in offering technical assistance and helping to support his coworkers. Even in the most stressful situations, David remains patient, kind, and helpful.

David embodies the Golden West College family spirit.

Congratulations, David, you’ve earned this award.
