In gratitude: A round of Applause! for success coach Chelsea Vann

This week, a round of Applause! for success coach Chelsea Vann.

“Since the beginning of Academic Success Coaching Team was formed this year, Chelsea Vann (formally known as Phany Sarann) has been instrumental in reaching out and engaging students who speak English as a second language and students who have disabilities,” an anonymous person wrote in the award. “Chelsea has demonstrated her passion for student support by going above and beyond to help students who are new to the college. Recently Chelsea helped a new ESL student with disability secure a student employee position by contacting different parties on campus and advocating for the student. Through her work, Chelsea has showed students that LCC CARES about them.”

This regular “In Gratitude” column features the good work you and your colleagues do around the college. It’s powered by Applause! Awards, an LCC-wide program designed to recognize you for providing excellent customer service.
