Batavia, NY- Genesee Community College is pleased to recognize Sandy Colson as Employee of the Month for January 2014. Sandy works in Housekeeping and has been with the College for 20 years. This is the second time she’s earned this recognition as an individual. She was recognized with the whole housekeeping department one other time.
“Sandy does an excellent job…and anyone who knows her knows that Sandy goes above and beyond in her duties and does so with a positive attitude,” the College noted in naming her Employee of the Month. “She demonstrates a commitment to her duties every day and her efforts contribute to the overall high level of cleanliness and general positive appearance of our facilities.”
Prior to her time at GCC, Sandy spent five years driving a school bus. Her only degree is in “hard work.” She notes, “I am a people person.” Her favorite part about working at GCC is “talking and helping everyone I can.” Aside from her housekeeping duties, Sandy has chaired her union’s sunshine committee for 13 years, acknowledging milestone moments in members’ lives.
Sandy resides in Batavia, and she has two children who live out of New York State. Her son, Robert Jr. lives in California with his partner Richard. Her daughter, Jennifer and her husband Manuel live in Florida. She has two grandchildren, Kaitelin and Joshua. Sandy plans to retire on March 28, 2014 and will move to a condominium in Jacksonville to live closer to her daughter. She’ll enjoy spending time with her family and making homemade candy. GCC wishes her all the best. “We thank Sandy for her attention to detail and the pride she takes in her work.”
