CLINTON — Clinton Community College has announced the recipient of the 2018 Connie Campbell Memorial Customer Service Award.
The award was created in memory of CCC employee Connie Campbell of Camanche who died in June 2006. The award honors a CCC employee whose work reflects the customer care that Campbell demonstrated daily, going above and beyond to give excellent internal and external service.
Shirley Turnis is the recipient of the annual recognition first awarded in 2007.
“Shirley is a wonderful choice for the Campbell recognition as she demonstrates the attributes of the award on a daily basis," CCC President Karen Vickers said. "Shirley is forever helping students or assisting her colleagues with new projects. She gives of her time and talents and does so in a very quiet manner. Shirley makes a difference in everything she does.”
Turnis is a CCC math instructor and fills other roles at the college, including online instructor, trainer, Phi Theta Kappa adviser and serving on college and Eastern Iowa Community College District committees. She joined Clinton Community College in the fall of 2001.
