Michael Coy

Spring 2018

Michael’s commitment to his department, the Arts, Jackson College and to students has enriched the lives of JC students as well as the Jackson College community.  Michael quietly goes Above and Beyond because he sees what needs to be done and just does it without fanfare or recognition.  Michael demonstrated this with a Student Employee in the Theatre Department.  Mentoring and guiding the student, often on his own time, to the point that she has moved on to a State University to pursue her degree in Stage Craft.  For these reasons, and many others, Michael clearly demonstrates Total Commitment to Student Success.
