Three programs have come together to start a new tradition at Brookhaven College. Each semester, the staff and students in the Disability Support Services (DSS) Office, the Counseling Center and Veterans Affairs (VA) Office nominate employees for an “Extra-Mile” award. DSS recognized Charlie Warnberg, adjunct professor, for his proactive assistance with specific students. Brenda Routh, nursing professor, was recognized by the counseling center for actively promoting services to her students in the nursing program. Bill Sigsbee, ESOL professor, also earned an award for welcoming counselors into his classroom and referring students to the center. Kim Montes, financial aid specialist, was honored with the VA award for her work in training Bobby Nieman to take over serving our veterans, and working tremendously long hours in order to accomplish what she does, both here at the college and throughout the district. The awardees were presented a certificate of appreciation in December.
