Debra L. Cormier
“Everybody’s best friend twice a month,” Debi Cormier has been distributing staff paychecks since 2003, when she joined the Foundation as its payroll administrator. Because she personally delivers each check, she’s also one of the most familiar faces at Mott, always generating a smile from every one of its 70-plus employees. A Michigan native, she is working on her bachelor’s degree at the University of Michigan-Flint and hopes to graduate in April 2018. She loves golf and music — the latter because of her talented children, one of whom now plays for the University of Michigan’s marching band. She and her husband have become UM sports fans as well, making as many games as possible throughout the year. Cormier still volunteers with the Imlay City, Michigan, high school band boosters, even though her son and daughter have graduated.
