North Georgia Technical College recently named Tammy Keyes the school's 2021 Employee of the Year.
Keyes, an accounts payable specialist in administrative services, has been employed by the college since 1998; she previously served as cashier for the college. Keyes was nominated by fellow staff members, who complimented on her job expertise and willingness to help others throughout the business office. She was also praised for her willingness to volunteer for additional duties as needed, especially during the pandemic academic year.
"This is such an honor and I’m very humbled and overwhelmed to receive this award," said Keyes upon her surprise announcement. “Everyone nominated should have won as we all worked hard last year during the pandemic to make vital adjustments to best serve our students. I want to treat others as I would want to be treated and help wherever I can. We are all a family here at NGTC, and we are always there for one another."
"We are very proud of Tammy and congratulate her for a job well done,” said NGTC President John Wilkinson. “I know she has done an outstanding job during a tough year, and I know all of her colleagues are thankful for her kind spirit and service to our students and the college.”
Keyes lives in Hiawassee with her husband.
