The nominator for Peggy wrote: “She plays a vital role in mentoring students both in and out of the classroom…She works tirelessly to advance students’ knowledge in their chosen career path. She has integrated many curricular improvements. These include helping students secure internships as well as bringing in industry representatives for mock interviews. Her advocacy for student development does not stop with GRCC.
