6A Wednesday, March 17, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Rose Cortez FRC honors classified employee Linda Satchwell Staff Writer Rose Cortez, was recently named Outstanding Classi- fied Employee of the Year at Feather River College, where she was a custodial employee for 32 years. Sadly the award, passed by FRC's board at their March 4 meet- ing, was given to Cortez posthumously. She passed away Dec. 2, 2009. Her job title did not begin to describe the work she did or the way in which she did it. According to FRC Presi- dent Ron Taylor's nomina- tion report, no one exempli- fied the mission of the col- lege like Cortez, who be- lieved in education and in every individual who at- tended and worked at FRC. Cortez used her job as "a way to get to know our stu- dents and staff. If a student ever needed anything -- tu- toring, books, food, housing, a ride or just company -- Rose took the time to assist them in acclimating to campus life and a new community. Oftentimes she was known to take students (and staff) into her own home, treating them as family and provid- ing for them," wrote Taylor. Cortez was especially sup- portive of FRC's student ath- letes. She knew "thousands of them on a first name ba- sis," according to Taylor. In addition, she took great pride in working to keep the athletic and other facilities to a very high standard both for safety and aesthetic reasons. She would often stay late to help co-workers and was also the "ultimate volunteer, always there for any event on campus, any student or staff in need, every athletic event, interpreting for our bilingual and international students, really anything you could ask," TaylQr added. What shone through most of all in the nomination re- port was Cortez's character. She loved everyone as if that was the only possible way to be in the world, and she cared for all equally. Taylor summed that up when he wrote of her, "She was an uncommon woman, sharing uncommon love, and we have been uncom- monly blessed because we knew her."
