Why are you nominating this person? Why do you think he/she deserves the award?: Leticia is an extremely dedicated professional who truly enjoys Cal Poly Pomona and her work on campus. I have had the opportunity to serve on a committee with Leticia and she consistently talked about the work that she and her department does very positively. I think she exemplifies why this award exists and is the perfect recipient for it.
Please select 3 of the 6 Division of Student Affairs values for which your nominee best exemplifies: Integrity, Passion, Quality
Please share how your nominee exemplifies value #1: Integrity drives everything that Leticia does – she does the right thing even when no one is looking. Her position takes her all across campus and she manages it all from directing traffic, to collecting the funds from the machines to actually repairing them. She takes her work seriously and with pride. She treats everyone who crosses her path very respectfully and follows through on her commitments. She is very dependable and reliable. For every meeting we had together she was prepared and contributed greatly to our discussion.
Please share how your nominee exemplifies value #2: Passion – While somewhat reserved in her demeanor, don’t let that fool you that Leticia doesn’t have passion – for her work or for Cal Poly Pomona. When speaking of the campus and her department, she does so with great pride. She is very conscious of her work and who her customers are – students, faculty and staff. She may wear a blue uniform, but inside she is green and gold.
Please share how your nominee exemplifies value #3: Quality – Much like her attitude in regards to integrity, Leticia also has a level of standards she follows for herself and her work. She is consistent and cares about the work that she does.
In what way(s) does this person enhance or contribute to the Cal Poly Pomona campus community?: Leticia is dedicated to her job and the students of Cal Poly Pomona. She serves on committees and often works extra shifts as needed for welcome week move in, the pumpkin patch weekend, and commencement just to name a few. It has been a pleasure to work with her on committees and learn more about her and her dedication to CPP. I think she manages a lot of work and takes it all in stride. She truly is a STAR.
