She is one of IRSC’s biggest fans and is committed to promoting the college mission of student success through gaining their engagement thru student activities. Wherever Rochelle travels she is always spreading the word about our College and the good we do in our community and for our students. As Student Activities Coordinator Rochelle is constantly on the go. Working on Main Campus, branch campuses and in our community, Rochelle dedicates every part of her day to finding new ways to get students involved.

Rochelle is definitely #IRSCPROUD, and it is evident by all that she does for our college and the community.

Rochelle’s co-workers love to share how her enthusiasm for the College and her passion for student involvement create an environment for success for our students. One co-worker shares, “We recently had our Welcome Back Event and it was an amazing success because of Rochelle’s hard work.” Another colleague talks about her attitude each day saying, “Rochelle is such a positive personality to be around. Her enthusiasm for promoting student engagement and involvement is infectious!” Finally another co-worker adds, “Rochelle is someone who provides support to everyone involved with Student Activities and events, we couldn’t go a day without her!”
