New Admissions and Records (A & R) Tech Savannah Huthmacher got her start at Cerro Coso, like many of our staff, as a student worker. While attending classes at the college she served as a student worker in A & R helping students to navigate the admissions process, performing clerical and routine duties while she obtained practical work experience.
She transferred to San Diego State University and upon graduation, Huthmacher and her husband Chris moved to Colorado. The two found the harsh cold winters too much to bear, so they returned to the warm desert of Ridgecrest after their daughter Lily (5) was born.
Huthmacher spent the last 8 months working in a distant quiet hallway in the accounting department for a local plant. “There just wasn’t enough contact with people for my liking,” she said. “I told my husband that a position in A & R at the college would be the perfect job for me, but nothing ever opens up in A & R. The next day a position in A & R was advertised and it felt like fate. I had to apply.”
Huthmacher loves working with the behind-the-scenes people who make it all happen. She enjoys working with college students – providing exceptional service, help, and encouragement as they journey through application, registration, parking, certification, and graduation. “This is a job I can see myself doing for a very long time,” she said.
The family enjoys a good adventure and spends their free time off-roading, rock hounding, cycling, and hiking. A 2004 Cerro Coso Community College graduate, Huthmacher holds an Associate’s Degree in General Education and a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology with emphasis in Zoology from San Diego State University. Fate will find a way. WELCOME to Team Cerro Coso.
