Celebrating Educational Advancements — Spring 2020

Tuesday, June 2, 2020

Valencia’s recognition program is robust — spanning from career anniversary celebrations to appreciation badges to the educational advancement program.

In the educational advancement program, which celebrates non-instructional employees who have been employed in a full-time position for a minimum of six months and who have earned a degree from a regionally accredited institution, the College awards employees a one-time, lump-sum payment, barring any degree that is a required qualification of the employee’s current position. Please note that employees are compensated for only one award per first academic degree earned.

Through this program, the College recognized the following employees for achieving a post-secondary degree:

  • Karen Wilson, senior director, IT project management office, master’s degree
  • Amy Sorrough, administrative assistant, master’s degree
  • Aixa Rosario, coordinator, college transitions/immersive experiences, master’s degree
  • Jennifer Nelson, instructional lab supervisor, math, master’s degree

Congratulations to these employees for their fantastic achievements. Please congratulate them in the comment section below.

For more information on the educational advancement policy, please refer to College Policy 6Hx28-3C-04 Total Rewards: Recognition of Full-Time Employees for Educational Advancement. For questions, email HR4U@valenciacollege.edu or call the HR4U helpline at 407-299-5000, extension HR4U (4748).
