Honored this year were:

Professor of Nursing Ellen Vangel-Brousseau, who retired from QCC in September 2018 after 35 years of service to the college.  Professor Vangel-Brousseau developed and promoted the college’s Nurse Education program. She established a Registered Nurse program for students with a baccalaureate degree in another area, working hard to ensure the program’s continued success.

Coordinator of Disability Services Joanne Sharac is one of the original founders who worked on providing services on campus for students with psychological disabilities, through writing and administering a grant from the Department of Mental Health. She has dedicated her 29 year career at QCC to working as a coordinator for students with emotional and psychological disabilities.

“Joanne’s depth of knowledge of the mental health field and best practices have benefitted our students, college and the greater community,” said QCC President Dr. Luis Pedraja.

Rounding out the honorees is Raymond Wisniewski, Director/Systems Administrator for Academic and Online Applications. In Mr. Wisniewski’s 13 years of service to the college, he has spearheaded a $600,000 upgrade to the computer classrooms and took on systems administration functions for Blackboard and Starfish.

“I want to thank each of you for being such an integral part of the QCC community and for your years of service,” Dr. Pedraja said.
