GRCC Spirit Award Presented to Francisco Ramirez

Francisco (aka Cisco) Ramirez, ESP in the Enrollment Center, was presented with the March GRCC Spirit Award. To quote from his nomination form:

“Francisco is a great employee who has provided an indispensable service to his community and this college. The biggest part of his job is to provide service. Anyone can do this however, always wearing a smile, he makes the student feel comfortable and glad to be here. His strongest ability is to lead. From training student workers to mentoring the students in the Hispanic Student Organization, Francisco takes on a leadership role motivating those around him. He is an exemplary employee, has a noble heart, and is a great friend. He would be honored to receive the GRCC Spirit Award and he would look great in that fedora!”
