Tabatha DeLong was recognized by community college trustees in Olympia Jan. 28 as Big Bend’s nominee for the Transforming Lives Awards. Tabatha has completed an associate Degree in Systems Administration, and has become indispensable for the implementation of simulation technology in the nursing department. She is taking classes at Central Washington University to earn a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology Administrative Management. However, BBCC and the nursing department need her in the meantime to help set up a simulator technician program. Congratulation Tabatha!
