Ms. Amber Crowley, second-year occupational therapy assistant student at Cape Fear Community College, received the 2019 Student Employee of the Year award. She was honored Wednesday, April 17 by Mayor Bill Saffo.

The student employee of the year is awarded annually to a deserving student who demonstrates excellence in their reliability, initiative, uniqueness of contribution, and quality of work.

Amber spent her work-study hours with the Cape Fear Community College Foundation. She was noted by the Director of Philanthropy Meghan Merritt for her professionalism, willingness to help wherever needed, and her audacity to learn:

“She took it upon herself to become very skilled in using our Raiser’s Edge software (where we make notes and track all of our actions/events with donors). The software is difficult to learn, but she jumped right in and is now helping us enter notes, track conversations, register donors for events, and much more. If she was going into our line of work, she would be hired in a heartbeat! We are grateful for her devotion to the Foundation.”
