Beverly Evans worked at Northwest Vista College (NVC) as an Administrative Support Specialist for over 14 years. When she started, NVC was still relatively new so she performed a range of other duties in addition to her administrative position – from serving as Cheerleader Coach to driving basketball team members to their games in the college van. She was well liked by students, staff, and faculty, for her smiling face was the first encountered when entering the president’s office. She performed her work duties with cheerfulness and efficiency and will be sorely missed by her friends and colleagues at the college.
Ms. Beverly, “The Diva” loved to dress up since childhood. She would strut into a room and command attention, whatever the occasion. When Beverly was in the building, you definitely knew it for she could be heard as well as seen. And once you met “Diva”, you never forgot her. She was larger than life and she brought joy to all who knew her. She was hilarious and everyone loved to be around her; absorbing that ray of sunshine which radiated within her. “Sally,” a catchphrase that she created was used as a term of endearment or as an exclamation point!
She was a very positive person, always looking for the good in any person or situation. She was loyal to a fault, but that was one of the reasons why she was so beloved. Beverly was a very generous lady – sharing whatever she had; but most importantly, sharing her precious time - helping those in need in whatever capacity; providing moral support and giving encouragement.
