Two Southeast Community College employees were honored by their peers. Dan Fogell and William Gehrig received the Wekesser Outstanding Teacher and Staff awards at SCC’s Lincoln Campus on Friday, July 14.

Fogell has been a biology instructor at SCC’s Lincoln Campus for 12 years. Former students and staff members nominated him for the award, one saying he “has the ability to inspire and motivate students.”

“The best part of my day is when I look at students and see the ‘light’ come on when they finally understand something,” he said. “If I don’t see that light, then it’s back to the drawing board to find another way.”

Gehrig is a custodian on the Lincoln Campus. He has worked at the College for five years. He was nominated by numerous students and staff who talked about his willingness to help others and go beyond the scope of this job.

“Working with all of them every day is a privilege,” Gehrig said. “SCC is a great place, and I like coming to work every day.”

In 1979, Robert and Edith Wekesser established a fund in SCC’s Educational Foundation to recognize people for outstanding service to the Lincoln Campus. Winners receive $500, a plaque and a balloon bouquet.
