EOPS (Extended Opportunity Program and Services)/CARE Coordinator and CalWORKs Director Dr. Georgina Guy was given the Outstanding Service Award by the California Community Colleges EOPS Association. Dr. Guy’s staff submitted the nomination form in hopes of recognizing her for going above and beyond the call of duty. One California EOPS employee is chosen for the Outstanding Service Award for making an “outstanding contribution and provided outstanding services to EOP&S.”
Orlantha Nin, EOPS Counselor, stated “Dr. Guy deserves this award for her tireless efforts to advocate for college students in the EOPS population. She does this at the local level by coordinating our program at Saddleback College and she is also very involved in advocating at the regional and state level. We are all very proud to know that her efforts are being recognized.”
Recently, Dr. Guy has taken the initiative to make two major changes on our campus. First, she converted her programs into a fully-paperless systems. This serves both as an efficiency and as an environmentally-friendly means of providing a service. The paperless system allowed the EOPS students to be the first group on campus to move fully to online student educational plan.
Dr. Guy also spearheads the new EOPS Student Success Committee. This summer, all students who found themselves facing challenges were required to meet with Dr. Guy and a counselor to review their situation. This hands-on approach and intervention made a significant impact on students and aided in making informed programmatic changes in the following term.
Congratulations on your well-deserved award, Dr. Guy! The entire Saddleback community is proud to have you on our team!
