The Office of the President of Genesee Community College recognized Rebecca Patterson, secretary in the Financial Aid Office as the January Employee of the Month. Becky began her service to the College in 2000 and her efforts in working with students and parents have been highly regarded by all.

Becky provides important bi-weekly reports to work study supervisors, and interfaces with many other departments to coordinate various paperwork processes. Among the many departments Becky keeps in contact with to manage a well-run work study program are Human Resources, the Business Office, Admissions, Marketing Communications, Athletics and the Mail Room.
