Take a moment today to thank the professional members of the college and your respective departments to wish them a Happy Administrative Professionals Day. For more information on the day and the week-long celebration, click here.
Today, there are more than 4.1 million secretaries and administrative assistants working in the United States, according to U.S. Department of Labor statistics, and 8.9 million people working in various administrative support roles.
That’s according to the website.
As a faculty member, I’ve relied heavily on the assistance of our professionals. First it was Latonya in Applied Science. Now it’s Shirley in Art and Architecture. Along the way, Seneca and Virna have provided their share of assistance. I know I’m missing a lot of names. Feel free to mention them.

HWC would stop functioning without the efforts of our MANY talented folks. In addition to the fine people mentioned by Ivan, I would include a big shout out to Sandra Gaona and Aretha Hall up on the 11th floor. They are problem-solvers extraordinaire. Hip Hip Hooray for Meryl Cobb in English, very often the calm in the middle of a storm. A big THANK YOU to Latonya Henley who always offers to lend a hand. Sherri Webb in ELL/World Languages- she is everywhere and she knows EVERYTHING! Mario in Math has been super helpful this semester, I totally appreciate all the work he does. I know I left out some people but I wanted to leave a few people for other people to brag on!
Indeed. My semester term as department chair made me believe that Sandra and Aretha might very well be the two most important and indispensable people on campus, and among the hardest working. They still manage to be extremely friendly and pleasant to work with.
