City of Richmond Employee Receives National College Alumni Hall of Achievement Award



May 06, 2013

Alice Harris, a 2006 graduate from the Richmond Campus’s administrative office specialist diploma program, has been given the American National University Alumni Hall of Achievement Award. Harris is employed by the City of Richmond in the Section 8 Housing Office where she works as the family self-sufficiency coordinator.

Campus director Keeley Gadd presented the award to Harris during the campus’s 2013 commencement ceremony which was held on Friday, April 19th at First Baptist Church of Richmond. “We feel that the induction in the Alumni Hall of Achievement is the most distinguished award that we can bestow upon an alumnus,” Gadd explained to the audience when presenting the award to Harris.

Harris came to American National University to retool herself and update her computer and communications skills after she was laid off from a company where she had worked for 21 years. She qualified for funding for her education through the Workforce Investment Act and the exclusive American National University Workforce Development Grant which matches tuition assistance from agencies.

In her job as family self-sufficiency coordinator, Harris helps empower her clients to improve their lives as she assists them in looking for jobs, finding career training, and more. She has said that her greatest joy comes from a client calling or stopping by to let her know that they got a job because this makes her feel like she has made a difference.
