|Diana Hopkins was hired in 1980 as a computer programer. On April Fool’s Day of 1997 Diana was promoted to Senior Programmer Analyst. No, it was not an April Fool’s joke as Diana was more than deserving. Diana is usually working before 7:00am every day so she is the morning greeter of the IT staff. She is one of the most dedicated employees at the College. Along with her usual responsibilities, recently she has revised a number of financial reports, scanned innumerable faculty evaluations, and is helping the Financial Aid office while they are short-staffed. Diana is always willing to help out and always goes the extra mile to make sure things are done right. Diana is also well known for her "world renowned candy jars"!! Whenever you need a stress break, you know where to go for a heart-warming smile and sweets! Congratulations Diana!|
