Ena Primous, administrative assistant to the vice president for student affairs at St. Louis Community College-Forest Park, will receive the Classified Staff Achievement Award from the Missouri Community College Association at the MCCA Convention Nov. 5-7 in Branson, Mo.

 

The award is presented to an MCCA member who has had a positive impact above and beyond their assigned job duties on their college and the Classified Staff Department. Only one award is presented statewide.

 

Primous has worked in Academic Affairs office at the Forest Park campus for 14 years. Her classified position is as the administrative assistant to the vice president of academic affairs. She is responsible for coordinating various functions associated with new student matriculation, including career development, financial aid, academic support and registration. She works with the State of Missouri Workforce Development to complete the required paperwork and proper approval for students receiving Trade Readjustment Assistance and Workforce Investment Act funding. 

 

Because of her extensive experience with many of the business office functions, including campus budgeting, personnel transactions and the coordination of room reservations, Primous recently was named the acting business services manager at Forest Park. 

 

Primous has served as chair of both the College Institutional Affairs Council and the Forest Park Institutional Council. She also serves as a sexual harassment investigator. Her contributions to the Master Class Series Committee helped garner the district’s Innovation of the Year Award for the League for Innovation in the Community College last year.

 

Primous joined STLCC in June 1999, first serving as an accounting clerk II in Business Services office and then moving to the Academic Affairs office. She holds an associate degree in information systems/programmer analyst from STLCC and a bachelor’s degree in management from Webster University.

 

Primous participates regularly as an election poll volunteer, and for several years has assisted the St. Louis Public Schools in organizing a transition to higher education and/or career fair for students with special needs. Primous is an active member of the MCCA.
