Christy Admire, State Fair Community College Eldon campus site coordinator, was named the 2023 Outstanding Employee of the Year by her peers at an employee recognition dinner in June.

She started at SFCC in 2014 as the SFCC-Eldon site coordinator.


Colleagues who nominated Admire described her as the “face” of the Eldon campus because she embodies SFCC’s mission, vision and values every day with a welcoming smile and a joyful and giving heart.

She is knowledgeable about everything happening at SFCC, organized and looks for ways to improve processes that meet students’ and employees’ needs for success. Coworkers praised Admire for her passion for community service not only as an SFCC employee but also as a member of the Eldon community. One colleague stated, “She is literally the glue that holds the Eldon campus together.”
