Congratulations to Ann Marie Olsen, Bay College's quarterly December 2016 – February 2017 TORCH Award winner. Ann is the College’s Testing Center Manager. Ann is recognized for her work at Bay College as noted in the following:

“Ann Olsen was nominated for this award because she had gone above and beyond when another Bay employee needed assistance with a project. They noted, “She is always willing to make sure the best outcome is possible, even if that means she stays a little late to make sure that the project turns out just right.” In a most recent example, she helped get a Bay College Norse banner printed for an upcoming student event at Bay College. Ann stayed late to work on getting the banner printed and trimmed so it could be displayed at the event the next day. There were multiple issues with getting the banner printed correctly, but Ann kept working on it until it came out just right! Ann’s team player and outstanding performance approach was truly demonstrated in this project. This is just one of the many examples of Ann putting the customer first and being responsive to others needs.”
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. TORCH stands for: Team Player; Outstanding Performance; Responsive to Others; Conscientious to Mission of Bay; Helpful to All. For one of these areas, or for one specific event or circumstance, please summarize how your nominee has shown the identified characteristic(s) while performing their job and, if applicable, how did their actions/attitude impact your job area. This award is given to one employee on a quarterly basis. Nominations will be accepted from employees, students and the community.
