Transferring from full-time instructor to part-time college evening supervisor, Nick Papaioanu, 62, who has taught electronics, computer technology, PC repair and manufacturing, and networking for 23 years will begin his new official position on January 5.

An instructor who has kept in contact with past students, Papaioanu says that his most memorable moment at the campus was the first day of the first class that he taught.

“The best thing about working at GCC was my students,” said Papaioanu.

“Follow your dreams and set goals,” are his guiding ideas. “Pick a vocation that you really enjoy because you might be doing it for a long time.”

Papaioanu said he has enjoyed the ride, “it has been a good one.”
