At 211 degrees water is hot, at 212 degrees it boils. One degree makes all the difference. To recognize NCK Tech staff who demonstrate superior dedication and the willingness to go the extra degree, the college is pleased to announce the Spring 2014 recipient of the 212° Award! Recipients of this award are employees who demonstrate a positive attitude and commitment to their profession, students, fellow employees, and a loyalty to the mission of NCK Tech. Eligible recipients are nominated by fellow employees and the award winner is selected by a committee of five NCK Tech employees. The award is presented twice a year, during the Fall and Spring semesters. Paula Rominger, NCK Tech’s Payroll/Accounts Payable Manager, was the recipient of the Spring award. Paula was honored during a faculty In-service meeting and presented a 212° Award trophy. In addition, her name was added to the 212° Award plaque, which displays all award recipients, and she received a letter of commendation and a gift certificate to a local restaurant. Congratulations, Paula!
