As a veteran educator on Ms. Hansen's campus, I can state with the utmost veracity that she makes an enormous contribution to the success of educators and scholars. She has been there for me and my last minute needs and requests at the drop of a hat and has never refused to help me even though she had her own tasks to complete. She is indispensable to my success. I have had the opportunity to observe her daily as she deals with all the trials and tribulations of scholars including, but not limited to, disciplinary issues and their physical and emotional needs. She handles all challenges presented to her with grace and efficiency. It is staff like her that I consider to be part of a strong foundation of campus success and a cornerstone of excellence. She is an ideal candidate for the LifeChanger Award.
