Friday, Dec. 7, 2012 is Judy Nelson Day at Central Lakes College. CLC President Dr. Larry Lundblad proclaimed the day in recognition of 43 years of service by Judy, who is retiring. This is her final day of work in the Records and Registration Office on the Brainerd campus. Judy began her career in 1969 at the age of 21. She said she looks forward to more time with two grandchildren and maintaining her regimen of daily walks, including the designated CLC indoor walk path she has faithfully trod with colleagues over her lunch time. "Our students have greatly benefitted from her outstanding work and her devotion to the job and the college," said President Lundblad. "We will all miss her positive attitude and friendly manner."
