The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Citation for Outstanding Performance: Ronnette Wongus

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Citation for Outstanding Performance: Ronnette Wongus

By Michele C. Dávila

This academic year has been very exciting in the life of our own Ronnette Wongus. In the fall, not only was she promoted to Administrative Assistant II for her dedication and excellent work in taking care of us in the World Languages and Cultures Department, but she also received the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Citation for Outstanding Performance. She was one of the five SSU’s employees who received this honor. As part of the celebration, President John Keenan met with the awardees to congratulate them. Ronni also participated in the Commonwealth Celebration at City Hall with Governor Charlie Baker, who personally congratulated her.

In addition to receiving these honors, Ronni was invited as a Guest Speaker in the Empowered by Me event hosted by Andrea Wilson in Lynn, MA. Because of her powerful talk, this year she was selected for a publication titled Faces of Lynn. In it she describes her Four D’s to Live By: Discernment (maintaining her confidence in God for answers), Determination (not taking no for an answer), Drive (having the energy to succeed) and Dedication (putting yourself 100% behind your work). No wonder Ronni has received such accolades. We are proud of you Ronni!
