                  Ukiah, CA – Mendocino College Human Resources Technician Betty Antoni was selected in November as recipient of the quarterly award for Classified Staff.

            “I just love driving up the road to work and seeing the new buildings under construction and how big the trees have grown. It’s a beautiful place.” she said.

            Antoni has worked at Mendocino College for most of twenty-five years. She started as a temp in the Athletic Department with Ed Boyle and Dan Drew. She moved on to the Instruction Office before accepting a permanent position in the Human Resources Department in 1987. She credits Tom MacMillan and Arlene Colombini with encouraging her to view Mendocino College as a career opportunity. “I’ve made so many friends here” Antoni commented. “The friendships have been a real plus in my life.”

            Betty directly assists approximately 300 part-time faculty members each semester while also providing related assistance to Deans and the Instruction Office” says her supervisor Karen Chaty.  “She also assists the public and college staff with a wide variety of complex and ever-changing HR issues.” Antoni also received the Outstanding Classified Employee Award from the Academic Senate for 2008-09.

The Mendocino College Foundation has allocated $2,000 annually for the classified staff recognition program. One recipient is selected each quarter by a committee that includes the Mendocino College Superintendent/President, two vice-presidents and the Director of Human Resources. The selection is based on supervisor nominations, contributions to the college and longevity.   

The winner has the opportunity to choose a college program to receive $500 which can be used by that program in support of the college’s strategic goals. 

Antoni requested that the $500 from the Foundation be divided in half, with the women’s and men’s basketball teams each receiving $250.
