Tri-C Famous: Katie Evans
#TriCFamous is a bimonthly feature that introduces readers to the people who make the College work while providing a sneak peek into their lives off campus.
Tri-C alumna Katie Evans (Class of 1986) joined the College 23 years ago as a Campus Police dispatcher. Today, she answers incoming calls, emails and chat messages as a customer service representative with the College’s Information and Enrollment Support Center and helps new students acclimate to Tri-C as a First-Year Success Seminar instructor. Her exemplary work was recently recognized with a Professional Excellence Award. Learn more about Katie in this week’s Tri-C Famous!
