Caring, welcoming and friendly are just a few of the qualities Connie Nichols possesses.

Nichols, exercise science/physical education wellness administrative associate, has been named March Ambassador of the Month.

“Mrs. Connie is the heart and soul of our department,” said LeBron Bell, exercise science/physical education wellness administrative associate, in her nomination. “Not only is she great at her job, but she makes our workplace an enjoyable place to be.”

In Bell’s opinion, she is the “best administrative assistant we have ever had.”

“She genuinely cares for our students and puts them first,” he said. “She realizes we only have a job because of the students and she believes in providing good customer service.”

She knows her subject matter well and believes in providing good customer service.

Nichols was hired in 1981 and, according to Bell, “knows everything.”

“She is the straw that stirs the drink, as the Yankees said about Reggie Jackson,” Bell said. “Connie Nichols is the glue that keeps Memorial Gym and EXPW together!”
