Bay College Announces Quarterly TORCH Award Winner

Congratulations to Travis Blume, Bay College's quarterly December 2015 – February 2016 TORCH Award winner.

Travis is the Executive Dean of Student Services, and is recognized for his work at Bay College as noted in the following:“Travis exhibits most, if not all qualities of the TORCH Award. He is a natural team player. He actively looks for ways to get more than one or two people around the table because he knows and lives by the fact that more heads around the table make for a better product. Travis is extremely responsive to others. He looks for feedback to ensure his processes and procedures benefit everyone down the road, not just immediately. He is extremely goal driven, and keeps the mission of the College in the forefront. He has changed the outlook of goal setting within the Student Services Department. He makes sure that goals are set, and that employees are able to obtain or exceed their goals. Travis is extremely helpful as well. He finds time in his busy schedule to ask his employees what he can do to make their job better. His supervision style allows for flexibility but extreme focus on the goal at hand, which motivates his employees. This outstanding performance is a beacon for all to strive toward.”

The purpose of the TORCH Award is to give personal recognition to those employees on Bay College’s campuses dedicated to the mission of the College because of their attitude, commitment, and dedication toward the higher education learning environment.
