Harrison honored with You Rock Award



Kathy Harrison, director of nursing at North Platte Community College, holds up the You Rock Award she received Monday morning in the McDonald-Belton Theater. 

The You Rock Awards are the college's way of celebrating employees who demonstrate exemplary customer service. Cindy Lovette, nursing administrative assistant, nominated Harrison for the recognition. 

"Kathy gives 200 percent in everything she does for the nursing department and the college," said Lovette. "Kathy has accomplished so much in her time as the director of nursing. Several major reports, a total curriculum overhaul, which was implemented last fall, and an accreditation visit are just a few of the things Kathy has managed so well." 

According to Lovette, Harrison put in many hours preparing for the accreditation site visit while also working on and obtaining her doctorate. 

"Everything Kathy does is top notch," said Lovette. "She always makes time for students, faculty and staff. Dedication and motivation are two of her strong points - along with a jillion others.  I admire and respect her very much."
