College of Communication & Education

Outstanding Staff Employee of the Year

Peggy Armocido (’92) is the Outstanding Staff Employee of the Year. This inaugural award recognizes the individual who has made a lasting and significant contribution to the department and College. 

Peggy joined the Department of Communication Arts and Sciences in 1987 as a clerical employee and received promotion to administrative support coordinator in 1989. 

With more than 30 years of experience in all things required for running a department office, Peggy has always made herself available to her peers. She offers support, mentorship, and training to new and permanent colleagues.  

In addition to her outstanding service to the campus, Peggy is co-chair on the Chico State Relay for Life team. She has raised more than $57,000 in 11 years.  

“As the department has enjoyed a strong degree of stability, continuity, and good standing over difficult times and high faculty turnover [due mostly to retirements], Peggy’s contributions must be noted as a key element to that success, and a department’s success is also the college’s success,” said Susan Avanzino, department chair.
