Welcome to our “Get to Know Me” feature for RVC employees! Today we are going to get to know Christine Lott.
Title: Director of Records and Registration/ Registrar
Department: Records and Registration
Tell us a little about your job at RVC.
Wikipedia (lol) states the following “Typically, a registrar processes registration requests, schedules classes and maintains class lists, enforces the rules for entering or leaving classes, and keeps a permanent record of grades and marks.”
I have heard that if Wikipedia says it – it must be true.
What motivates or inspires you?
I love seeing students succeed and watching them develop from new freshman to college graduates. My children truly are my purpose and they push me to be better.
What scares you?
What do you like to do for fun?
I have many hobbies, including auto racing, antiques, music, my son’s baseball and basketball games, and trying new restaurants. I just wish I had more time to do them all more often.

My very first job was picking up cigarette butts from my father’s business parking lot. I was about 7. Gross, I know. I have worked many places from hotels, the mall, insurance sales, embroidery shop, banks, schools, and several area racetracks.

My awesome parents!
