April 2013 Classified Staff Employee of the Month
Business Office Accounting Clerk, Henrietta McClellan is being recognized as the Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College, April Classified Staff Employee of the Month.
McClellan joined the staff of Southern as Business Office Cashier in July 1992. She then became responsible for the switchboard and information desk. She not only answers the phones, but greets students and visitors. She offers directions to those in need, processes all incoming and outgoing mail, and helps in the business office when needed.
McClellan says she is a “people person and that helps with this job”, she said. This attitude was a reason for her nomination. Her nomination form stated, “It takes a special person to maintain a genuine, welcoming smile while working in a high-traffic area, serving countless customers who stop by her desk.”
“I have really enjoyed working here at Southern for the past twenty-plus years. There are many wonderful people here and I cherish the friendships I have made while working here, not only with other employees, but also with the students. If I ever retire I will be taking some wonderful memories with me,” she said.
McClellan and her husband of 35 years Jerry, have a son, daughter, step-son and five grandchildren.
