The Administrative & Professional Collaborative (APC) is the representative voice for the Administrative & Professional employees of FSCJ. In an effort to build cohesiveness, awareness and collegiality, each month we put a “spotlight” on one of our members.
October’s Administrative and Professional Collaborative (APC) Spotlight shines on Dawn Washington, Library and Learning Commons manager at Kent Campus.
Dawn began her career with the College four years ago as an academic science tutor in the Kent Campus Library and Learning Commons (LLC). She was subsequently promoted to LLC advisor, Learning Commons manager and her current position, Library and Learning Commons manager. As the LLC manager, Dawn is responsible for overseeing the day-to-day activities of the LLC, including hiring, supervising, scheduling and budget oversight. She also provides leadership in planning and implementing services to support the LLC and College initiatives.
Prior to working at FSCJ, Dawn was a middle school science teacher in the public school system for six years. During this time, Dawn discovered her passion for learning and education. Although she enjoyed her time as a public school teacher, she always felt a pull toward higher education.
Dawn has earned a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology as well as an MBA. She is currently pursuing a Doctorate of Education in Educational Leadership.
In her free time, Dawn enjoys time with family. She has four siblings including an identical twin sister.
Our spotlight shines on each campus/center at least once a year. Nominations for the spotlight may be directed to your campus representative or any officer. Learn more about APC on our website, blogs.fscj.edu/apcollaborative.
