Cliona: A story of excellence
Cliona Geraghty optimizes EXCELLENCE! Everything she does is exceptional. Once you work with her, you want to do better; she makes you feel like you can accomplish anything, and she gives the confidence to try new things - people want to be better because of her. Cliona started with Fanshawe teaching in the Academic Upgrading program at the Woodstock campus where she moved people to love everything from chemistry to government. Her talents were quickly recognized and she was recruited to teach in Child and Youth, Pre Apprenticeship Carpentry, Contract Training and Human Resources where she eventually became the Coordinator. Cliona moved from the Woodstock campus to London with the HR program and was soon inspiring London students to achieve their best in the classroom and in the community. For the past 7 years, Cliona has coached students in the Ontario College’s Marketing Competition and has 3 top finishers in 5 of the last 6 years. She worked with numerous community partners to develop a mentorship network for her students and to develop the new Human Resources Bachelor of Commerce Degree program. Cliona’s talents were once again recognized and she is now a Curriculum Consultant with the Centre for Academic Excellence – the perfect place for someone who always strives for excellence and brings out the best in all of us.
