Lamar State College Orange (LSCO) and the Greater Orange-Area Chamber of Commerce awarded an Employee of the Month and a Student of the Semester at the LSCO campus this past week.
LSCO President Thomas Johnson, Chamber President Ida Schossow, and Chamber Board Chair Chris Kovatch, among otherse, presented the awards to Becky McAnelley, LSCO Employee of the Semester, and Hannah Shearin, LSCO Student of the Semester.
Hannah is Secretary of the Student Government Association. She participates in every event on campus and helps promote the events throughout campus. Faculty members appreciate her regular contribution in classes and her “natural talent” for working well with other students. Before coming to LSCO, Hannah completed enough Dual Credit hours while attending high school to earn her Associate’s Degree, while also earning her high school diploma at the same time. Hannah continues to take classes at LSCO and plans to transfer to Lamar University to study Speech Pathology.
Faculty and staff describe Becky McAnelley, LSCO’s Employee of the Semester, as always having the “best interest of LSCO students and community in mind.” Her coworkers describe her as patient, tireless in her efforts, and a delight to work with. Becky began her career at LSCO as a student worker and was later hired as secretary to the Dean of Student Services. She held the recruiter/advisor position before moving into her current position as Registrar. In a career of over thirty years at LSCO, Becky has been an integral part of each student’s success at LSCO.
