Today we shine the staff spotlight on me, Mindy Scroggins. I thought I should introduce myself first, because even though my actual job title is Student Finance Manager (financial aid), I also manage social media and the website. Here are my answers to the questions.
Q: How long have you been at California Christian College?
A: As a full-time employee, almost 19 years.
Q: What’s the backstory to you being here at Cal Christian?
A: It’s a family thing. At least a dozen relatives have attended which include my parents and sister. I started as a student in 1996 and a few years later I was working at the front desk on Work Study. After graduation in 2001 I became a full time employee. In 2002 I took over financial aid. Along the way I have added in coordinating graduation, managing the website and the past few years managing Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest accounts.

Q: Which church do you actively attend?
A: The Well, North Campus
Q: What do you do in your free time?
A: I am a decorative paper hoarder but mostly I make cards to mail to friends and family. I’ve also started dabbling in pyrography.
Q: What is your favorite sports team?
A: Los Angeles Dodgers… Go Blue!
Q: What is your favorite breakfast food?
A: A Chickfila biscuit is hard to top but I also love homemade waffles.
Q: What is your favorite meal and who makes it best?
A: My birthday dinner request was always potato chip chicken made by my mom (with a rainbow chip frosted cake, of course).
Q: Where is your favorite place to visit or vacation?
A: The beach! (It’s also the theme of my office so I can feel like I am there.)
Q: Where is one place you haven’t been that you would like to visit or vacation?
A: I’d like to see the Pacific North West and the South Carolina coast.
