June 15, 2021 – Tina Crosby is retiring from Santa Fe College after 27 years of service in the President’s Office and a total of 35 years with the state of Florida. Her last day on campus will be July 1, 2021.
Tina started out as a secretary with the Florida College System Risk Management Consortium in 1986. She became an executive secretary in the President’s Office in 1994 and was promoted to executive assistant in 2002.
Over the past 19 years, she has worked closely with the college’s President and District Board of Trustees in managing the administrative needs of the President’s Office to support students, faculty and staff, the college and the communities we serve. Her office is a crossroads of the college, and she managed the constant flow of people, programs and proposals in a manner that is a rare combination of grace, efficiency and humanity.
“I have greatly benefited from Tina’s support, impeccable leadership and breadth of knowledge of the institution and the community,” said SF President Paul Broadie II, Ph.D. “She is a trusted and valued colleague who embodies the highest values of our college. As a public face of the President’s Office, she has fostered goodwill with multiple constituencies, demonstrated tireless commitment to serving students, and attended diligently to the needs of faculty and staff. It has been an honor to work with such an incredible individual who has truly made a difference at our institution and had such a profound impact on me and others throughout our college and community. She leaves a stronger Santa Fe that will continue to benefit students and those of us fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with her.”
In performing her many responsibilities, Tina has been engaged in every facet of the college. She was a leader in planning dozens of special ceremonies and events, including commencement ceremonies, convocations, groundbreakings and visits by assorted dignitaries. For her many contributions and high level of professionalism, she has earned quarterly employee recognition awards. Throughout her tenure, she has built strong personal relationships, and in doing so helped faculty and staff do their best, which is recognized locally, statewide, nationally and even internationally.
Please join us in recognizing Tina at her retirement reception, Thursday, June 24, 2-3:30 p.m. in the President’s Area.
