Jackie Burton New, Springboro, 1984 Business Data Processing
Jackie New was nominated by former instructor Christie Leis. She works at the Warren County Career Center as the voice and face of our school district. Every person entering the building during the day is greeted and assisted by Jackie and left with a feeling of being valued and respected. She is active in her church, Germantown Community Harvest Church, working with the youth, and also works with the youth in the 4H club New Horizons.
This is a quote from one of her letters of endorsement written by Yvonne Kaszubowski: “Jackie has made the transition look easy to WCCC as an employee from a student. She works closely with career-technical, academic and other staff members to serve all students. She has taken the skill sets she learned at WCCC as a student and has developed additional skill sets to be a premiere employee who is a shining example of workforce skills imparted by the staff of WCCC. I am glad we were able to have her return as an employee on campus and utilize those skills to our advantage. We are stronger as an educational entity because she is on our campus.”
Holly Sandefur Dean, Franklin, 1989 Office Specialist
Holly Dean was nominated by former instructor Gail Hubler. She has managed Franklin Self Storage for 17 years and is very active in the Franklin community where she lives. Holly is a member of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce, on the boards of the Franklin Historical Society and the Franklin Parks and Recreation Association, and has worked over the years on many school and city committees. This year, she was selected as the Grand Marshall of the Franklin Fourth of July parade in recognition of her community work.
This is a quote from one of her letters of endorsement written by Franklin Fire Chief Jonathan Westendorf: “The Franklin Community is a better place because of Holly Dean. It isn’t just because she is a member of the Franklin Chamber of Commerce, the Franklin Historical Society and a number of other city and school committees. It is because when there is a need, Holly takes a definite and noticeable step forward, raises her hand and her voice and says, ‘I can help.’ Actions speak louder than words. Her name isn’t just listed on a committee roster…forget the list; you know she is part of the group because she is often leading by example.”
