Two Seminole State College employees were recognized for their hard work and dedication during the monthly Seminole Chamber of Commerce Forum on Feb. 13. Business and Education Instructor Dan Hill was honored as “Faculty Member of the Month” and Business Services Coordinator Melissa Marshall as “Staff Member of the Month.”
The Seminole Chamber of Commerce Education Committee, along with the Lions Club and Blue Ribbon Realty, recognize SSC employees several times during Forum each year. Individuals are nominated from across the campus and chosen by SSC administrators to receive the honor.
Hill has worked at SSC for nearly four years. Beyond teaching courses, he also serves as the Women’s Soccer Head Coach. He led the Trojan soccer team to the NJCAA Division I National Championship Tournament in Melbourne, Florida in 2019, a first in the program’s history.
He received his bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis on History at the University of Oklahoma in 2007. He then completed his master’s degree in business administration at the University of Central Oklahoma in 2016.
“The main thing I enjoy about SSC is the people I work with and the students and players I teach and coach every day. We facilitate a true family environment at SSC. My job is something I feel very blessed to be able to do,” Hill said.
Hill resides in Seminole with his wife Emma Speer, the counselor at Seminole High School and a graduate of SSC.
Marshall has been employed by the College for nine years. As the Business Services Coordinator, she supervises accounts receivable, payroll, purchasing and accounts payable.
She received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 2008 and her master’s degree in Accountancy in 2014, both at the University of Phoenix.
“I enjoy working with the people at SSC and constantly learning,” Marshall said.
She and her husband, Edward Marshall, a retired veteran, reside in Seminole with their three boys Kieran, Kadin and Kristian.
“I love spending time with my family, and I’m looking forward to our oldest son graduating from Seminole Public School this year and attending North Central University in the fall,” she said.
