Values Champion Shout-Out: Sierra Netz

Each week, CNM will be recognizing staff and faculty doing exceptional work and representing CNM's Core Values— Be Caring, Be Ethical, Be Inspiring, Be Courageous, Be Connected, Be Exceptional.

Jun 10, 2020

This week’s Values Champion was nominated for going above and beyond to help a visually impaired student who struggled when COVID-19 forced CNM to move classes online.

Her nominator wrote: “This transition was difficult for so many of our students, but it was especially difficult for this student. To support the student, the nominee took the initiative to call him twice a week for the remainder of Spring term. She read his assignments out loud and helped him continue progressing in the course. The student not only finished the term, but the student passed the course with an A!”

The nominator said that thanks to the nominee’s incredible work, it was hard to narrow down which Values Champion category to choose.  

The nominator wrote: “Her work shows how much she CARES for her students, how CONNECTED she is to her students, how EXCEPTIONAL she is to go above and beyond to support her students, and how INSPIRING she is as an educator.”

Nominated by Philip Lister, this week’s Values Champion is faculty member Sierra Netz.
