Two Staffers Receive Professional Organization Awards

November 16, 2018

Two Wayne Community College employees were honored during the recent North Carolina Association of Educational Office Professionals District 12 conference.

Joanna Morrisette, NCAEOP District 12 Administrator of the Year

Joanna Morrisette, WCC associate vice president for academic and student services, was named the District 12 Administrator of the Year. “A role model employee and supervisor” is how Bessie Wells, the organization’s scholarship committee chair, described Morrisette. “She is loyal, hardworking, and dedicated to students, faculty, and staff.”

Becky Mulligan, NCAEOP District 12 Educational Office Professional of the Year

Becky Mulligan, the college’s institutional effectiveness coordinator, was presented the District 12 Educational Office Professional of the Year Award. Wells called her “an inspiration to everyone she meets,” and said, “She is truly an outstanding example of an educational office professional.”

Mulligan has been active in the college’s AEOP unit and at the district level, serving on and chairing many committees and holding offices.

The women will be the district’s nominees for the same honors at the state level. Those awards will be announced at the NCAEOP Conference in March 2019.
