PRESTONSBURG – Exon Menjivari was looking for an opportunity to make a difference.
He landed at the right place.
Menjivari is the new student success coach at Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC).
“It has been exciting,” said Menjivari, who started on July 11. “I want to build relationships with students, listen and recommend an appropriate path for them.”
A resident of Pikeville, Menjivari has a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting and management.
Menjivari said he knew BSCTC was the right place for him after meeting with President Dr. Devin Stephenson.
“Dr. Stephenson has a passion for the people of this region, including the Hispanic and African American community,” said Menjivari. “My hope is to assist in that effort, to recruit more students and to make them aware of the opportunities available here.”
Dr. Stephenson said Menjivari’s role is important to the students of the college.
“As a success coach, [Exon] is responsible for making sure students have the support they need to be successful,” he said. “Exon has the ability to connect and inspire, and we are glad he is on our team.”
Menjivari’s office is located in the Student Center on the Prestonsburg campus of BSCTC. He can be contacted by phone at (606) 886-7384 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
