Carolyn Nielan

Congratulations to Carolyn Nielan

The Senior Executive Staff would like to recognize Carolyn Nielan, Manager of the News-Journal Center.

Carolyn coordinates and manages approximately 125 events per year, some of which include graduations, pinning ceremonies, dance competitions, job fairs, public government meetings, art shows, and concerts (by our bands, orchestra and choirs, as well as outside concerts), just to name a few. She also played a vital role in planning and running the historic Mary McLeod Bethune statue exhibit.

When the performing arts came to a standstill during the first year of the pandemic, Carolyn took the opportunity to oversee needed facility renovations with new carpet, lighting, and set designs. Throughout it all, Carolyn has displayed an amazing resiliency, a calm problem-solving approach to challenges, a great sense of humor and a positive outlook.

Please join us in congratulating Carolyn for this outstanding employee award.

Susan Toce

Congratulations to Susan Toce

The Senior Executive Staff would like to recognize Susan Toce, Senior Administrative Assistant in Student Development.

The pandemic began shortly after Susan joined DSC, and she quickly became an integral part of the COVID-19 Case Management Team. Her positive attitude and caring nature are a natural fit for this team as she continues to work closely with case managers to assist with the tracking and reporting of student exposures and positive cases.

She continuously takes the initiative, demonstrates tremendous adaptability and flexibility, and maintains a high level of dedication to the College and our students.

Please join us in congratulating Susan for this outstanding employee award.
