Dear NOCE Classified Professionals,
Classified Employee Appreciation Week presents us with an opportunity to thank you for the critical roles you play in the success of North Orange Continuing Education. Your constant support throughout the year allows our students to focus on their education without distractions. A welcoming, safe, and supportive environment you create helps everyone achieve their best.
All of you, whether you work directly with students in a classroom or lab setting, at the registration desk, throughout the campus, out in the field (or in the cloud) providing technical support, or in the office as the fiscal or administrative backbone of our institution, keep our school moving forward.
Along with the leadership team of our school, I deeply thank you not only this week but throughout the entire year. From the bottom of our hearts, we appreciate all that you do to make North Orange Continuing Education successful.
