MCC honors Coach Ben Greer with ‘You Rock’ award
McCook Community College has honored Ben Greer with a “You Rock” award for exemplary internal customer service.
Greer serves as softball coach, sports information coordinator, and weight training instructor at McCook.
The nomination letter said while Green has only been employed for just a little more than a year, he has a true passion for success of the college.
“Ben is a highly educated, professional and a well-liked employee who is approachable, accommodating and good natured. It is obvious to all who get the privilege to work with him to see how much he deeply cares about the students and their experience at college,” the letter of nominated said.
“Ben not only wants them to succeed as athletes, but academically first and foremost but then also to grow and become responsible, well-adjusted adults.”
The letter went on to state that citizens in the community are absolutely raving about Ben and not just his coaching abilities, but the kind of person he is.
“Recently I spoke with a local parent who has a high school daughter that is currently taking private hitting lessons from Ben and who is desperately hoping to play for Ben after she graduates.”
The daughter had never been interested in MCC or staying in McCook but after meeting Ben, she says she’ll follow him wherever he goes.
Another parent echoed her admiration for Greer, whose daughter greatly improved after Greer coached her.
“There is something to be said for Ben already having that kind of reputation and the kind of reputation I hope all of our college staff would strive to have and that’s why I think he deserves the You Rock award.”
“We want exemplary internal customer service to become the new “standard” of how we operate rather than the “exception,” said Janet Stalder of the Internal Customer Service Team. “Ben is a great example of that.”
