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!”
