Kudos to Kyle Morrison for going above and beyond again this year to assist in the creation of NMC’s retiree videos to honor this year’s retirees. Kyle took the employee submitted videos and masterfully remastered them with music, animation, editing, and photos to co-create beautiful, meaningful remembrances to share with retirees and campus. Kyle’s customer service is outstanding! Thanks for all your great work, Kyle; we appreciate you!

Kudos to Laurie Sears and David Chown for providing their beautiful music on the flute, saxophone, and keyboard for the 2022 You Made It Possible Celebration. The music created ambiance and a beautiful atmosphere for employees and attendees to reconnect, relax, and enjoy the afternoon!

Kudos to Jeff Sabins: Jeff stopped his own work to help me find my lost key in the Dennos parking lot. It had disappeared in my car and Jeff went to a lot of extra effort to help me search using all the tools at his disposal. I was so frustrated and didn’t have a flashlight or anything else to help me look but he stepped in and went to great pains to help me find it. I appreciate his help so much! Thank you, Jeff!

Kudos to Dan Goodchild, Jason Slade, Amy Burns, Bailey, Stephen Siciliano and Georgenia Hromada: Dan, Jason, Stephen, Amy and Georgenia hosted the signing of the articulation agreement with the Michigan Statewide Carpenters and Millwright Joint Apprenticeship and Training Fund. This event showcased how education and industry are working together to encourage people to enter the skilled trades and offer advanced learning opportunities. Thank you for all your hard work on the agreement!

  • Welding — Rick Mathis, Ryan Deering, Matt Pickler, Brenna Glinski, Kaylei Johnson
  • Automotive — Wayne Moody and the Bill Marsh Auto group
  • Construction — Phil McCuien

There was lots of NMC representation from other areas as well and there was a great turn out of around 2,000 9th graders!

Kudos to Alex Bloye/Aviation staff and Diana Fairbanks/PRMC staff for utilizing their training to meet a challenging emergency situation with a safe outcome. Kudos also to Alex Bloye and Diana Fairbanks for handling the communication surrounding the incident. Well done!

Kudos to Cindy Deemer, the Commencement team and all participants and speakers: The new format seemed to be well received and it was wonderful to see a full Milliken Auditorium. Well done!

Kudos to Kari Kahler: Kari has gone above and beyond through this past academic year in establishing a NMC mentorship program with 5th graders at Blair Elementary. Over 30 NMC students have been mentoring a 5th grader and she recently coordinated with Blair to bring the 5th graders to tour NMC for the day and envision themselves as a Hawk Owl someday. The profound impact this program has had on not only the 5th graders, but the mentors as well, will continue to be seen for over their lifetime. This partnership and project would not have been possible without Kari. Thank you, Kari, for being a champion and advocate for NMC and lifelong learning in this community.

Kudos to Cindy Deemer: Cindy gathered a team of volunteers, planned and put on a fantastic graduation event that spanned 6 hours between the 3 ceremonies. In between she found the time to feed the volunteers with salad and goodies she made herself and purchased pizzas for all as well.
The event location at the Dennos was perfect and Cindy’s organization made things run so smoothly. And of course she did it all with a smile. She coordinated an event that was special to students and their families.

Kudos to Grounds & Facilities: Over spring break, Learning Services did a clean out day of our storage in the basement of Osterlin. This amounted to LOTS of trash. Thank you to Grounds and Facilities for helping us dispose of 25 years of stuff, involving multiple truck loads of trash being taken away. We appreciate you!

Kudos to Brittany Hanbury and Rachel Colby: Brittany and Rachel brought the Voices student group back to life during the fall semester as a way to support, advocate for, and bring awareness to survivors of sexual assault. Throughout the last two semesters they have grown the group, requested funding for night caps (as seen on Shark Tank), held weekly meetings, planned and executed a sticker creation contest, Rachel advocated for and made happen new light poles on a dark sidewalk of campus and last night they helped run a very successful Light Up the Night event put on by Student Life. They are a group who is making a difference here on campus!
