Congratulations to Sharon R. Hephner – Aviation Supervisor on her retirement from WATC. Sharon worked with the Aviation Tech Center since 2004 and in the same capacity with WATC since July 2008.
As the Aviation Supervisor, Sharon was responsible for the department workflow and administrative team. She provided student services for those enrolled in the Aviation Maintenance Technology (AMT) program for the college. Sharon actively counseled students on areas such as class progression, career planning, enrollment, graduation, certificate completion, student FAA records, financial aid (FAFSA, Pell grants, loan applications, and scholarships), tuition payment, and referrals to four-year institutions.
Sharon came to WATC with more than ten years experience in organizing, coordinating, and managing the academic and administrative requirements of a university outreach site. Her expertise is in her ability to interact with students, faculty, and staff at all levels to effectively provide a quality educational experience. She will be greatly missed.
