Has a staff or faculty member at NWACC made a difference in your life? Tell them!
Show your appreciation by sending a note of THANKS. One of the most effective ways to express appreciation is often one of the most overlooked: saying “Thank you.”
Every day employees assist students and each other in many ways.
In an effort to recognize these extra efforts, the THANKS Program has been created.
The basis of this program is to recognize an NWACC employee who has gone above and beyond to be of assistance and make a difference in your life.
If a staff or faculty member has made this kind of positive impact on your experience at NWACC, please send a message letting the staff or faculty member know you value him or her.
Employees get the added bonus of being recognized by the President, and entered in a drawing for a $100 gift card. You can thank as many faculty and staff members as you want. Submissions can be made anonymously. http://tiny.cc/nwaccthanks
