Today we shine the staff spotlight on me, Mindy Scroggins. I thought I should introduce myself first, because even though my actual job title is Student Finance Manager (financial aid), I also manage social media and the website. Here are my answers to the questions.

Q: How long have you been at California Christian College?

A:        As a full-time employee, almost 19 years.     

Q: What’s the backstory to you being here at Cal Christian?

A:        It’s a family thing. At least a dozen relatives have attended which include my parents and sister. I started as a student in 1996 and a few years later I was working at the front desk on Work Study. After graduation in 2001 I became a full time employee. In 2002 I took over financial aid. Along the way I have added in coordinating graduation, managing the website and the past few years managing Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.

Q: Which church do you actively attend?

A:        The Well, North Campus 

Q: What do you do in your free time?

A:        I am a decorative paper hoarder but mostly I make cards to mail to friends and family. I’ve also started dabbling in pyrography.  

Q: What is your favorite sports team?

A:        Los Angeles Dodgers… Go Blue!

Q: What is your favorite breakfast food?

A:        A Chickfila biscuit is hard to top but I also love homemade waffles.

Q: What is your favorite meal and who makes it best?

A:        My birthday dinner request was always potato chip chicken made by my mom (with a rainbow chip frosted cake, of course).

Q: Where is your favorite place to visit or vacation?

A:        The beach! (It’s also the theme of my office so I can feel like I am there.)

Q: Where is one place you haven’t been that you would like to visit or vacation?

A:        I’d like to see the Pacific North West and the South Carolina coast.
