Terri Fields is the recipient of the Estella Salley Outstanding Staff award at Hazard Community and Technical College because of her work with Allied Health programs. She was presented with the award by HCTC President Dr. Steve Greiner during a college-wide meeting.
Donna Combs, Nursing coordinator, said, Terri Fields is deserving of this award because of the outstanding job that she does and her dedication to make sure that the student's needs are met. She works with all of the Allied Health Program Coordinators to assure that accreditation documents are completed and submitted by the due date, that course materials for students are updated and provided to students, that accurate and correct information is provided to current and potential students in a timely manner. She is approachable, articulate and a problem solver. She always promotes a positive image of the college.
Fields has worked for HCTC since May 2000. My favorite part of this job is interacting with the students, she said.

Terri Fields has a complete understanding of why we are here to serve students. We are all proud to see her receive this award because of the dedication she has demonstrated to all these future workers in the Allied Health fields, he said.
