Lake Charles, Louisiana – May 30, 2019
Debbie Lejeune, Professor and Program Coordinator at SOWELA Technical Community College, received the Customer Service Star Award for the Spring 2019 semester at the Annual Employee Appreciation Luncheon. SOWELA’s Customer Service Committee selects award winners from nominations submitted by faculty and staff of the College.
Those nominating Lejeune stated, “she tirelessly serves SOWELA and her students. Her work ethic is second to none. She is one of the finest administrators that I have had the privilege of working alongside. Debbie has served the College for 29 years as a faculty member and administrator. While she carries many titles, the title of educator is what defines her the best. Students leave her classes as better people, and better office workers.”
Dr. David Shankle, School of Business & Applied Technology Dean, said, “working with Debbie Lejeune is truly a blessing. Her organizational skills coupled with her ability to educate students makes her one in a million. She is not only an incredible worker, she is a friend. Debbie is someone I rely on for wise counsel at work, and her wisdom is shaped by her years of experience at SOWELA. She is so deserving of the Customer Service Star Award!”
