Every Retires From CCC&TI After 33 Years
Carolyn Evert, Director of Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute’s Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research is retiring from the college after 33 years. Evert served 22 years as Librarian and the last 10 in her current position, but she came to the college initially as a student. Over the next 11 years, Evert says that she continued her education and earned a bachelor’s and master’s degree both while working full-time in the CCC&TI library. Having started out as a CCC&TI student and continuing her education while working have given Evert an appreciation for the students she has spent her life’s work assisting. Evert says that she will miss the work she does every day on behalf of the institution, but more than anything, she will miss the people. Upon retiring, Evert has a number of things on her to-do list, not the least of which is touring around in her Mini Cooper convertible. She also plans to do some travelling and has already begun volunteer work with a number of local organizations. “Beyond that, three dogs, seven cats and many plants will keep my days full,” she says. CCC&TI congratulates Carolyn Evert on her retirement.
