Kelly Frias-Perez, February 2011 Anchor Award Winner

Student Employment Services created the “Anchor Award” to give applause to outstanding Student Employees who help “anchor” their departments no matter the circumstances.

This award is unique in that it recognizes Student Employees for their contributions to their department and to the college based on a different trait/skill each month. Below are the nomination qualities and the corresponding month each will be recognized:


  • Attitude
  • Noble Character
  • Change/Adaptability
  • Humanity/Diversity
  • Organization/Innovation
  • Responsiveness/Accountability

The Anchor Award Winner for February (Organization/Innovation) is Kelly Frias-Perez. Kelly works in the Business Department and was nominated by his supervisor, Mary Gunderson. Mary referred to Kelly using the nickname “Radar” for his ability to stay organized and react to the needs of the Business Department — often before he is even asked!

Congratulations Kelly!

Signs of a Heart Attack (From the GRCC WE Team & AHA)

From the GRCC WE Team and the American Heart Association, Signs of a Heart Attack:

  1. Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.
  2. Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
  3. Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.
  4. Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.
  5. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.

If you have any of these signs, don’t wait more than five minutes before calling for help. Call 9-1-1…Get to a hospital right away.  Remember to wear red this Friday, February 4.
