Susan Sircy—Difference Maker at the Madison Campus

“When I received my own college degree as an older student, I was overjoyed with an accomplishment that could never be taken away.  It took a lot of dedication and hard work, plus it opened so many doors.  I want everyone to have that experience.

“I feel that the little things are just as important as the big things in helping students succeed. For instance, greeting them warmly each and every day; asking them how they are and truly meaning this.  I will find ways to address concerns they express to me by following up expeditiously with a plausible solution or suggestion.

“There are many things I enjoy about being a member of the National College staff and each are intrinsic rewards – knowing that I can be a small part in the big picture of someone’s success is very gratifying.  Like a small pebble when thrown to the water, the resulting ripple effects are far-reaching from the initial act.  Each of us makes a difference by our everyday actions.  My goal is always to serve – not to be served.  I try to keep this in mind, even during the most challenging times.”
