“Keondra has been with UNCP in the School of Business as the Executive-in-Residence for Student Success since July 2013. In this short period of time, Mrs. Mitchell has done an outstanding job!”
When the Dean asked if she would take on all the numerous duties of her predecessor, “being the team player kind hearted, loving, passionate soul she is, Mrs. Mitchell agreed.” In addition to these responsibilities, Keondra had four classes of her own she was teaching. Mrs. Mitchell handled every responsibility, task and other issues like a champ, never one time complaining. This would be hard for anyone but especially for someone brand-new to the university.
The School of Business held our annual awards banquet back in April and every year, the students nominate and choose 1 "Outstanding" faculty that has gone above and beyond to assist the students and help out whenever needed. This year, that award went to Mrs. Keondra Mitchell.
