Since Lupe has been the Case Manager for the FCDP in Okeechobee, she has grown the program by 60%, a remarkable accomplishment. While Lupe calls the Dixon Hendry Campus her IRSC home, she travels within the college’s four-county service district to meet students and provide exemplary customer service wherever it is needed. Lupe continuously goes above and beyond for IRSC students while she provides wrap-around services and a positive “can-do” attitude that helps them succeed. If a student needs assistance to pay for tuition or requires textbooks for courses, Lupe works hard to find the solution.

Lupe is always willing to lend a hand with other events on campus and represents IRSC at numerous community events. Innumerous times, Lupe has educated Spanish-speaking families about the Dual Enrollment program. Lupe also serves as a role model for her students. She recently completed her bachelor’s degree in public administration, graduating in December of 2022.

Lupe’s colleagues recount that her student experiences are always positive, and she keeps students at the forefront of all she does. One coworker states, “Guadalupe is a ray of sunshine each day, and her outgoing personality and energy are contagious.” They continue saying, “Her passion for helping others navigate the complications and balance of life and school is at the heart of it all—as she shares the highs and the lows alongside her students.”
