The CBPA would like to recognize Denise Gonzalez and Cindi Strengari, two of the longest serving staff members, for their outstanding service not only for the CBPA but for the university.
Secretaries Denise Gonzalez (Management and Marketing) and Cindi Strengari (Undergraduate Social Work) both have served the college for 34 years. During this time, they have observed many changes. "We've seen four different University presidents and an interim," said Gonzalez. While both have seen changes in the University, there is no doubting the passion they feel for their job and the people around them. "When our graduates get into agencies and then come back to see you or stay in touch, it really makes you feel like family," said Strengari.
