Colette Long retires as comptroller

GSW Comptroller Colette Long retired at the end of February 2021. Colette began working at GSW in the summer of 1990 with the JTPA Educational program through Continuing Education, and later moved to the Elderhostel Senior Education program, also through Continuing Education until 1998.  From 1998-2002, she worked in IIT as a Computer/System Technician under Mrs. Debbie Hanes before moving over to Accounting Services as Payroll Supervisor from 2002-2017. She became Comptroller in 2017.

“So many precious memories - all of which are surrounded by my GSW family,” Colette reflected. “Some of my fondest memories are with the Kids College that we had while at Continuing Education back in the 1990s, working with our students and GSW community throughout all my different positions at GSW (teaching our students real life skills-rounding out their educational experience) and the most recent is when we were able to bring a couple of our horses to GSW and share them with the students (hope we can do again).”

Colette plans to return to her roots on the farm in retirement. “South Winds Farm (horse farm) is a little different than the row crop farm I grew up on, but the 'life' is still the same. Lots of hard work, but worth all the effort,” she said. “I will still be working with our farm 'students' to help them grow and learn - education is in my blood.”

“The most important thing about my professional life at GSW has been the relationships,” she said. “From students to campus and USG colleagues, these long-lasting relationships are .... forever indelible on our hearts and minds.”
