Senior administrative assistant in the college’s division of career, transfer and special programs, Brooke Sauter has been named Saddleback College’s Classified Employee of the Year.
After Sauter was nominated by her manager, Dean Nelson, and selected by the voting committee for the award, everyone around her had nothing but good things to say.
“If you’ve been fortunate to work with Brooke, you know how deserving she is of this award, and if you haven’t worked with Brooke, you’ve undoubtedly heard about her excellent work ethic and infectious enthusiasm,” Saddleback College President Tod Burnett wrote in an email to the Saddleback community, when announcing her award last month.
“It was just really nice to see that I make a difference, which is important to me,” Sauter said.
“I love what I do and the people I get to work with every day, and the students. I’m just happy to be here at Saddleback and part of the Saddleback team and family, so I guess that’s what’s most important to me.”
Sauter has been an employee of Saddleback for six years, but when she’s not on campus she loves hanging out with her 4-year-old daughter and husband. Sauter said she looks forward to camping and going up to the mountains.
