FS Employee Excellence Award: Margaret Phillips
Margaret Phillips (cashiering), who was recently named the Fall Quarter Short STTACC Award winner, was honored for her efforts to help students facing crisis. Her nominator relayed a specific incident when a student was desperate for his financial aid check. She immediately went to the folks in finance to work out a solution for the student, ensuring he would get his check that day. “With her showing patience and taking the time to resolve his issue, the student left that day with a financial aid check in his hands and commended Margaret for caring enough to help fix his problem,” said his nominator. Margaret is living the Pierce mission by demonstrating the core values of integrity and respect, and by helping remove some of the barriers to student access.
