The Support Staff Association would like to honor Anna Fredell as the Spotlight Member of the Month for November 2014. Anna transferred from Sandhills Community College to attend CVCC in the Fall, 2005-2007, graduating with a degree in Accounting.
After graduating from CVCC, Anna became employed at David Khatod CPA in Hickory where she worked there for 3 years. Later Anna decided that she wanted to expand and take her skills to another level assist-ing and interacting with more people. She applied for the Financial Aid Technician opening at CVCC and became employed as the Financial Aid Technician on July 19, 2010 to the present.
Anna’s various duties include assisting students, processing FAFSA applications, filling out third party income verification forms, scanning and filing financial documents, and assisting her co-workers when extra help is needed. Anna also mandates the Financial Aid Extension line where messages are left with questions from students to her department. She tries her best to return all the calls before leaving for the day, but some-times depending on what semester we are in she can get over 40 calls per day and it takes more than a day to return the calls. Confidentiality is a very important part of Anna’s job. Anna is a member of the Support Staff Association and attends meetings when she is able to get away from her office.
Anna and husband, Billy have been married for 8 years and they reside in Newton. Billy has been employed with Penske Racing as a Car Builder Inspector/Engineer in Mooresville for 7 years, but has been involved in NASCAR for 18 years. They have 2 children, Emma, age 7, who attends Concordia Christian Day School and Levi, age 2. Her family occasionally attends Concordia Lutheran Church in Conover.
Anna’s hobbies include doing activities with her family, planting flowers, riding bikes, swimming, and attending some NASCAR races. She enjoys traveling, sight-seeing and taking photos for her scrapbook and memory wall collections.
Something you may not know about Anna is that in junior high and high school she played volley-ball and cheerleading. To this day Anna can still do a cart wheel along with some cheerleading jumps without injury.
