Noreen Camacho, a talent acquisition specialist in human resources is retiring after working at Boise State since 1989. Camacho began at the university working in financial aid when all student forms were done with pen and paper, and gasoline was only sixty cents a gallon. She has also worked as a technical records specialist, a compensation coordinator and a human resources supervisor.
“Noreen is an HR all-star,” said Catherine Weitz, associate vice president of human resources. “People across campus know her as the one to call when they have an HR need and she always provides answers. Her depth of knowledge, warm demeanor and excellent customer service skills are second to none. ”
Camacho has served on the association of classified employees as a senator (2001-2003), volunteered and organized Rake Up Boise (2004-2020), volunteered for her children’s school and, with her generous spirit, coordinated gifts and food for families during the holiday season. She has been a liaison and “second Mom” for incoming Million Dollar Scholars, helping new students coming from Saipan and surrounding islands settle in Boise, often hosting them in her home for dinners and holidays. She is especially proud that six of those scholars reached graduation. During retirement, Camacho will channel her boundless energy to help in the community and spend time with family and grandchildren.
“The experiences and relationships I’ve gained throughout my 33 years has been truly rewarding,” Camacho said. “I will treasure these as I look forward to my new adventure in life.”
The campus community is invited to join human resources and university colleagues at an open house party 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, August 16 to celebrate Camacho’s years of service. The party will be held at the “kitchen,” located just across the breezeway from the human resources office on the southeast corner of University Dr. and Capitol Blvd.
