A round of Applause! for Testing Services and Monica Torres

This week, we’re applauding Testing Services.

“Testing Services always displays knowledge, courtesy and seamless efficiency, but especially during the past several months!” Andrea Tarry wrote in the award. “We work together with our high school dual enrollment students, High School Advantage students, and our Promise and H.O.P.E. Scholars. Every time I copy Testing Services on an email with a student who needs their services, they reply with detailed information in a fast and courteous way! They help each student with patience and kindness. Thank you, Testing Services, for all your help, especially during these difficult times!”

Applause also goes to HHS’ Monica Torres.

“The amount of craziness that comes with start of semester has been amplified by HHS having multiple new support staff who have spent more time at home due to COVID-19,” Leah Bloomquist wrote in the award. “It also doesn’t help that the semester is structured differently than any previous semester. Monica has been amazing in helping with everything from faculty pay to student overrides. This week, she was invaluable with late-registering/reinstating multiple students from my programs because I did not have access to register them myself. She is always there to lend a helping hand and is a great team player. The HHS divisional office is so lucky for having her. Thank you, Monica!”
