Jennifer Nessmith, student coordinator for the College of Engineering and Science, has been named Most Valuable Panther for February.
In announcing the award, the Office of Human Resources said:
“Jennifer Nessmith joined Florida Tech in 2010 as an administrative secretary, later moving to Admin II and then in 2020 becoming the student coordinator for the College of Engineering and Science. As such she is the point of contact for students in one of the largest programs the university offers.
She assists well over 500 students in a friendly, patient, methodical manner. This includes every aspect of their academic career from admission to graduation. Jennifer is instrumental in helping both professors and their students with course scheduling, program plans, final program exams and more.
Jennifer is proactive in making herself available to support students and actively communicates with them regarding important deadlines such as petitions to graduate.
Jennifer understood the importance of ensuring continuity of program instruction and administration for Southern Maryland engineering students up until their closure, ensuring they felt the full experience of on-campus engineering students. She was instrumental in making the transition for the Southern Maryland students smooth and seamless. These qualities make Jennifer Nessmith our Most Valuable Panther.”
