Citrus College Campus Safety Officer Honored
By Stacy Armstrong

 

David Ramirez, a Citrus College Campus Safety Officer, was recently honored during a meeting of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees.

 

Ramirez, who has worked at Citrus College since 2006, was presented with the “Above and Beyond – Classified Development” (ABCD) Award on Tuesday, April 2.  He is the second Citrus College employee to receive this honor and was nominated by Dr. Martha McDonald, dean of students, and Dr. Arvid Spor, vice president of student services.

 

“Campus Safety plays an important role in the college’s ability to serve our students and our community,” said Dr. Geraldine M. Perri, superintendent/president.  “As a Campus Safety Officer, Mr. Ramirez has consistently demonstrated a professional demeanor when interacting with the public.  His thoughtful and professional way of handling situations makes him an asset to his department and to Citrus College.”

 

The ABCD Award provides the college with the opportunity to honor outstanding classified employees on a quarterly basis.  The Classified Staff Development Committee, under the leadership of Dr. Eric Rabitoy, dean of natural and physical sciences and library, and Tina Crosby, facilities operations assistant, developed the criteria and selection process for the award. 

 

Mr. Robert Coutts, president of the Citrus College Chapter of the California School Employees Association (CSEA), praised Ramirez on behalf of CSEA and announced that the chapter will add to the honor by making a donation to the Citrus College Foundation for student scholarships in his honor.

 

“I congratulate our second Above and Beyond – Classified Development Award recipient and extend our appreciation to the board of trustees, Dr. Perri, and the managers and supervisors who have supported the effort to recognize our outstanding classified employees,” Coutts said.

 

Mrs. Susan M. Keith, president of the Citrus Community College District Board of Trustees, was happy to present Ramirez with his award.

 

 “It is wonderful to have the opportunity to honor a member of our dedicated classified staff,” she said.  “The college community is grateful to Mr. Ramirez for his commitment and hard work.”
