True Blue Gem of the Week


Johnson, LanaLana Johnson

WHO SHE IS: Lana has been an administrative assistant in the BCU admissions office since 2000.

WHY SHE WAS NOMINATED:

A student says, "She greets everyone with a heart-warming smile, even on her bad days. She is, what the administrative offices say, 'The face of Briar Cliff.'  Lana is also like my second mom; always asking me and everyone else walking by/visiting how they're doing, how school's going?"

Another student says, "Lana is willing to help everyone at any time. For example, over break if students don't have a place to go, she will house them for a day and make a splendid home cooked meal. Not only that, but if you need someone to talk to she's always there with her best advice. She's willing to go out of her way to make sure others are happy."

Congratulations to Lana Johnson, our True Blue Gem of the Week for Sept. 6!
