Nine Seminole State College employees graduated from the College’s Transforming the Future program, a training and development program designed specifically for College supervisors.
Launched in 2010, the program is a product of collaboration among Human Resources, Legal Services, Payroll, Safety and Security, and Business Services. During the 18-month program, supervisors from varied College departments attend classes and workshops and complete self-paced online instruction on subjects related to College policies, desktop applications, legal issues of management, goal setting, management and leading teams.
At the March 7 graduation, Dr. Joseph Sarnovsky, executive vice president and chief financial officer, emphasized the importance of lifelong learning and shared some of his own experiences as an adult student while seeking his doctoral degree.
The latest graduates of the program are: Mercedes Bermejo, dean of students at Heathrow; Christine Broeker, director of curriculum, articulation and academic scheduling; Lynda Cole, coordinator of campus library services; Nancy Harrison, associate director of payroll services; Kimberly Maznicki, associate dean of biological sciences; George Milwee, supervisor, grounds maintenance; Susan Montgomery, administrative assistant in student life; Gary Snyder, manager of facility plant; and Tana Stem, supervisor of the business office.
