Learning Assistance Center

Outstanding Student Employee Award

On a regular basis, we select a student assistant to honor for his or her outstanding service to the Learning Assistance Center. We call this the "Above and Beyond" award because it was created to recognize student employees who exceed job requirements to offer excellent service to our diverse student population.

Crystal Gordon started working as a student worker for the ESL Center in Fall of 2013. Since then, Crystal has been one of our most experienced and valuable workers. She has provided outstanding services in the ESL Center to various groups of ESL students, as well ESL tutors, faculty and co-workers.

Professor Michelson, the Faculty Coordinator of the ESL Center, says, “Crystal has been a shining star in the ESL Center for four semesters. She remains calm and poised in every situation and always has a smile on her face. Her creative vision and skills for decorating the ESL Center for each holiday makes the Center more inviting and reminds our foreign students about American holidays. Crystal is an intelligent, friendly, reliable, and sophisticated front desk staff member who takes her job seriously, isn't afraid to offer new ideas for improvement and also has a kindness that lights up the Center.” 

Crystal’s major is Early Childhood Education. She always has a smile on her face when she talks to students, faculty and fellow staff members and is a stellar example of providing friendly service to everyone who enters the ESL Center. She loves to read and craft and has created many beautiful decorations for the ESL Center. Recently, she started working as an art docent at Pasadena City Hall, where she is guiding tours for 2nd grade students.   

We are very pleased to announce Crystal Gordon for the 2015 Employee of the Month. It is our honor to have Crystal as a staff in the ESL Center.

Congratulations, Crystal!
