Person of Interest

It is SSC's pleasure to say our co-worker Felicia Hankins has graciously agreed to be our Person Of Interest this January and February.  Felicia is an Information Specialist in our TnCIS office at our Hardin Valley Campus.  Felicia states, "My name is Felicia and I work in the TnCIS office, where we handle study abroad trips for Pellissippi and colleges across the state. My first experience with study abroad was in 2009 and I traveled to Greece for 3 weeks with TnCIS. At that time, I was living in Memphis, TN and attending Southwest Community College. After the Greece trip, I decided that I wanted to earn a degree in International Studies and help other students travel abroad. I worked in the International Studies office at Southwest for 6 years before moving to Knoxville in July 2016. I started at Pellissippi in August and enjoy working in the TnCIS office!"

Thank you Felicia for agreeing to be our Person of Interest. We are glad to have you here at PSCC!!!!

Q.   What's your favorite zoo animal?

A.  The Red Panda. It’s so cute, like a teddy bear.

Q.   Is your glass half full or half empty?

A.   My glass is always half full.

Q.   How old were you when you learned Santa wasn't real? How did you find out?

A.   I was about 7 years old when I realized Santa wasn’t real. I woke up on Christmas morning to find zero presents. Apparently my parents had fallen asleep after wrapping them and didn’t put them under the tree. I woke them up and they told me to go back to bed because Santa hadn’t visited our house yet. 30 minutes later, there were presents. After a little bit of investigating, I found out the truth.

Q.   Your favorite memory or childhood object you still have?

A.   I have a cute little teddy bear from my Girl Scout days. It’s at least 25 years old.

Q.  What's the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?

A.   I’ve eaten kangaroo and it was delicious. Tasted a little like deer.

Q.   What was your first job?

A.   My first job was McDonald’s and I was 17. I hated it. I always smelled like grease and I would have nightmares about the fry machine alarm going off over and over!

Q. What is your favorite family holiday tradition?

A. We don’t have a specific family tradition but I do enjoy being with my family for the holidays.

Q.  What is the one thing you’ll never do again?

A. I’ll never question the wisdom of my Grandmother. If your grandmother tells you something, you better believe it’s true!
