Her nominator writes, “Anyone who knows Hayley knows her to be meticulous, diligent, detail-oriented, and hard-working. Dr. Hayley Ashby exemplifies Norco College's core commitments and embodies the Mustang spirit.” Dr. Ashby has been instrumental in supporting the planning efforts of the college in a number of ways that support student transformation, college transformation, and effectiveness, planning and governance.
