The Core Value Award is an award in recognition and appreciation of individuals who exemplify Cox College’s Core Values of Student First, Highest Quality, Communication, Nothing Is Impossible, and Lifelong Learning.
The recipient of the Core Value Award – Student First – for the month of September is Amy Bishard, Instructor in the Billing, Coding and Transcription Program.
“I am nominating Amy Bishard for this award as I feel she went over and above in helping our students through a stressful week. Unforeseen circumstances caused our students to have to begin the semester without textbooks for most of their classes. As one can imagine, this was very stressful for the students as they are all online with due dates and times. Amy spent many hours on the phone with the book publisher in order to gain temporary access for our students so that they could begin working without the book. She also took the time to scan and load pages of text so the students did not feel like they missed an entire week of school.
Amy rearranged the student assignments in multiple courses to accommodate them during this time. She also took time out of her week to meet with many of her students by phone or in person to walk them through processes which they could have done on their own, if they would have had a textbook.
I believe Amy went above and beyond to see that our students had everything they needed to get a good start on the classes even without the textbooks. She is very caring and even offered to pay to have the books shipped to the students once they arrived. She is definitely deserving of receiving the Core Value Award of Student First. She made it her priority to see that every student was taken care of in a not so good situation.”
Congratulations to Amy Bishard for being this month’s Core Value Award recipient!
