Annual Luncheon Highlights Best of MDCC Staff

Staff Luncheon May 2015

A luncheon was held recently to honor Staff Employee of the Month recipients for the 2014-2015 academic year. Funded by the generosity of donors to the staff appreciation fund, the event was held at the MDCC President’s home on the Moorhead, Miss., campus and was co-hosted by Dr. & Mrs. Larry Nabors and the staff appreciation committee.

Pictured left to right are monthly award recipients in attendance: Dr. Larry Nabors (College President), LaShandar Johnson, Marsha Lee, Maegan Applewhite, Jackie Bailey Hall, Emily-Kathryn Simmons, Gay Ann Cotton, Susan Walker, Mary Ellen Buchanan, Mrs. Tonya Nabors. 

The staff appreciation committee is composed of staff members representing different areas of the college. This committee randomly selects a department each month, and the employees working in that department select the award recipient. The committee arranges a special gift basket for the monthly recipients. In addition, the committee organizes the annual luncheon held at the president's home.

Mississippi Delta Community College operates a payroll deduction program that allows employees to support Foundation and College scholarships and programs, such as the staff appreciation fund, by way of automatic monthly deductions.

Gifts made to the staff appreciation fund are needed and much appreciated, according to MDCC Foundation Director Reed Abraham. MDCC employees may setup a monthly payroll deduction of any amount to support this fund.
