 Meet Our People

Ms. Zulema Cheek

Ms. Zulema Cheek

Since 2011, when Union County College has been awarding monthly “Team Player” to employees who bring a “can do” attitude to work every day, probably one of the most nominated staff members has been Zulema Cheek. She received her official “Team Player” award a year ago, in February 2015. Even so, based on the recommendations that the newsletter staff continually receives, Ms. Cheek could win “Team Player” virtually every month.

As in that song from Oklahoma!, Ms. Cheek is an employee who “can’t say no.” President McMenamin is impressed with the way Ms. Cheek “steps up every time we ask her to expand her role at the College.”
