The Wellness Counselors
I have submitted referrals for approximately 15% of my students. If that trend holds true for most instructors, I can’t even imagine the volume of students you are receiving. Thanks for all your effort.

Betsy is absolutely amazing. She always takes care of everything and anything I need to run my classes smoothly. She goes above and beyond in providing materials, responding to students and giving any support she can. I can say she is the most caring and involved supervisor I have ever worked for.

Life Science Lab Techs
The lab techs have been short-staffed this semester and have still done a tremendous job of making sure the labs get set up and ordering materials so that students can still get the best lab experience possible.

Officer Scott Ross
Last week, I left the office late, only to be welcomed by a flat tire! I called Wake Tech police, and Officer Ross came quickly to the rescue. He was fast, efficient, used his jack so I didn't have to take mine out and had my tire changed before it got dark! Thank you so very much! U R a ROCKSTAR!
