Charise has been instrumental in several important projects and challenges the college has been faced with. Among those projects, she used her organizational skills to facilitate the cataloging of over a 1,000 pieces of evidence for our accreditation visit going above and beyond to pave the way for a successful visit. Charise also assisted with the remediation of many documents to help our students and faculty adjust to the online environment in record time.
