Christina Henggeler-what do you even do here?

Christina Henggeler provides safety and help to students on the Paulding campus.

Christina Henggeler is the Paulding campus site manager. Her daily routine varies, starting with a campus walk to check on students and other faculty and staff to ensure coverage in key areas like the business office and library.

Henggeler’s role involves greeting students and addressing any emerging issues.

“My goal is to make students enjoy the time they spend here at GHC,” Henggeler said. “I want to say hello to them. I also want to keep my eyes on the facility if we need to make any reports.”

Beyond her morning routine, she helps plan and assign courses to certain classrooms for the upcoming semester.

Henggeler extends her commitment beyond campus borders, serving as the Vice President of the Towards Zero Suicide coalition. Additionally, she acts as a college advisor for Women to Women, contributing to the empowerment of female students through mentorship and coordinating engaging events.

From hosting district competitions to organizing meetings for state representatives and Girl Scouts, she ensures that the Paulding campus serves as a hub for community activities.

“We have a room over in the Winn building set aside for the community to use and organize GHC Paulding events, such as our annual Jingle Mingle and Chili Cook-Off so if you’re on campus on Dec. 5 then you should stop by,” Henggeler said. 

She aims to make it a place where students not only learn but also enjoy their time.

“I think it is really fun when colleges decorate their campuses,” Henggeler said.  “I try to make each holiday festive and make it a place that you want to be.”

Henggeler is a member of the Paulding County High School Advisory Board and other areas of the community.

“I’m also on the governing board for Paulding’s College and Career Academy. We’re going to meet with Judge O’Connor next week. She’s a female judge here in the area who was a non-traditional college student,” Henggeler said.

Henggeler transforms the campus into more than just a place of education; it becomes a community hub where learning is not only encouraged but celebrated. 

With every event, meeting and interaction, Henggeler reinforces the idea that GHC is a space where students don’t just attend classes, but become part of a vibrant and supportive community.
