January 2018 Featured Employees
Carol Boles, Executive Aide, Library Administration
Nancy Meredith, Executive Aide, Student Services Administration
Ms. Carol Boles and Ms. Nancy Meredith are the two nicest women you will meet as a
student. I got the opportunity to work for and with both of these ladies during the
Summer Semester. Both of these wonderful women go far and beyond to make everyone
feel that they are important. At that time, Ms. Boles was the SORC secretary and handled
all of the students with care, as if each one was her child; in fact, I and a few
of her other student workers call her our adopted "Mom". Ms. Meredith is the Executive
Aide for New Student and Family Programs. With each orientation or event, she is prepared
to assist anyone with anything and is appreciated by the student workers for her positive
attitude and outlook. And these ladies are good friends. To see them working together
or just sharing lunch will give anyone "Friend Goals".Both of these ladies have helped
dozens of students, faculty, and community leaders. Personally, they both made my
summer; even if I was hit with a difficult situation, I knew I could go to work in
an uplifting and caring environment. I believe they should be recognized for their
hard work and for their unwavering positive attitudes!
