Long-time Ozarks Technical Community College employee Alice Jefferson received the Missouri Community College Association’s Senior Service Award tonight, Nov. 5. Jefferson accepted the award at the opening ceremony of MCCA’s annual convention at the Hilton Branson Convention Center.
Jefferson has served OTC as a custodian since 1991. Prior to that, she worked for the Springfield R-12 school district as a custodian at Graff Vo-Tech. When Graff became the new site of OTC, Jefferson joined the college’s staff. She is one of 22 original full-time employees still with OTC.
“Alice has been part of the college since its inception. She is known throughout the OTC System for her big heart and incredible work ethic,” said Dr. Hal Higdon, chancellor of Ozarks Technical Community College. “Her compassionate nature and unwavering dedication to the college is truly exceptional.”
MCCA’s Senior Service Award is presented annually to an employee from each of Missouri’s community colleges for his or her longstanding service. The president or chancellor from each campus and center recommends an employee for the award who has worked for the community college for 20 years or more.
