Staff Employee of the Month

Update | Tuesday, September 7, 2021


A Conference Center employee who has been at the College since 2016 was named the new Staff Employee of the Month at last weeks’ First Wednesday.

Lori Gage, who is the coordinator at the Conference Center, was nominated by her colleagues on the Conference & Event Services team: Patricia Huston, Greg Hetterscheidt, Patty Gabrenya, Bri Wears, Kyle Strohecker, and Ben Kalb

Gage recently nominated a Columbus State event – Diversity in Hospitality: Black Chefs Speak Out – for a national award. The event subsequently won the award, which was part of the Association of Collegiate Conference & Event Directors International conference. 

Huston’s nomination letter said, “(Gage highlighted) the need for diversity and inclusion in events and motivated our department to adjust and improve our DEI efforts. Lori often goes above and beyond in her commitment to excellence in her role at Columbus State.”
