    Contact Center sets open house 

    Contact

    The Contact Center has adapted and changed through the years as San Jacinto College has continued to grow. Below is a very condensed timeline —

    Pre-2006
    Each campus has someone to answer phones for the campus and route calls – I believe it was handled in the Evening Dean’s division

    2006
    New phone and information system implemented
    Jeff Levine serves as Call Center / Outreach Director

    2007
    Jeff Levine continues his role

    2008
    Anita Jones assumes responsibility for the Call Center

    2011
    Anita Jones leaves SJCD
    Richard George creates the Contact Center

    2014
    Richard George leaves SJCD
    Ernesto Wallmark becomes Supervisor of the Contact Center

    Please stop by the Open House on November 12 to get better acquainted with this team of dedicated professionals, who very often serve as the important first contact with San Jacinto College.
