NPCC employees honored with You Rock Awards


Jessica Epting

Five employees at North Platte Community College have been recognized for demonstrating exemplary customer service. 

Jessica Epting, Ann Walsh, Randy Peterson, Camden Grasmick and Mike Summers were presented with You Rock Awards on Monday at NPCC's North Campus. 

Jessica Epting 

Epting is the area webmaster and graphic designer for the college. She was nominated by nursing instructors Nicole Kissinger and Lana Albrecht-Watson. 

The women said Epting has been a tremendous help to them by creating signs and flyers for numerous student activities. She also designed t-shirts, a large banner, race bibs and a superhero poster for a 5K hosted by the nursing department. 

"Jessica is a team player and a wonderful member of the NPCC family," her letter of recommendation reads. "She has been great and does not balk at anything we ask her to do. She has really gone above and beyond for the nursing department." 

Ann Walsh 


Ann Walsh

Walsh, area lead graphic designer for the college, was nominated by the NPCC Student Life Office. She was praised for her quick turnaround time and quality work on last minute projects. 

"Ann has been exemplary for us here in Student Life whenever we need her, and we are so appreciative of that," her nomination letter reads. "It gives us peace of mind knowing that we can always count on her. Ann deserves this award because she rocks." 

Randy Peterson, Camden Grasmick and Mike Summers 


Randy Peterson, Camden Grasmick

Peterson, Grasmick and Summers are custodians on NPCC's North Campus, where they were nominated by staff and faculty. 

"These guys are always so cheery and happy as they work," their nomination letter reads. "They keep our building looking nice. If we need to change anything, or need help setting up a room, they are more than willing to help us." 

Peterson was lauded for being the "go-to guy" and for taking over full maintenance responsibilities until more staff could be hired following the retirement of a longtime custodian. 

Grasmick was described as someone who goes above and beyond what is expected of him and of being efficient, kind, respectful and a pleasure to be around. 

"Camden and Mike have such shining personalities and upbeat attitudes," the nomination letter reads. "All three of these gentleman are about the happiest and most easygoing around. Their attitudes are contagious. They are our greatest ambassadors."
