A MacMurray College staff member has received a state-wide honor for her dedication to improving service and opportunities for people with disabilities.

Director of Disability Services Pamela Harrison was named the 2016 Meritorious Service Award winner by the Illinois Council for Exceptional Children earlier this month.

Harrison has worked at MacMurray for the past eight years. In that brief time she has streamlined processes for students and faculty to ensure their needs are supported.

Prior to her career at MacMurray, Harrison coordinated Pathway Services’ group homes for 17 years.

Harrison currently serves on the board of trustees for West Central Mass Transit District and is a member of the Jacksonville Rotary Club.
