Many thanks to the Trustees for nominating me for the Association of Community College Trustees' Marie Y. Martin Chief Executive Officer Award. As you know, Friday, October 13, was a night to be remembered! To be selected from among the 1,200 community college presidents in the United States is an unbelievable honor!
Thank you for your constant support and encouragement!!! However, this award is not my award, it is Seminole Community College's. It belongs to all of us in recognition of all that we have accomplished these last ten years!
Endowed Teaching Chair
And, just after I told Matt Hodge that we needed to turn this award into "big bucks" for SCC; Bobby Mandell, a longtime business associate and dear friend of SCC called. He had seen the award announcement and is endowing a Teaching Chair - $60,000 - in my honor! WOW!!
Dr. Angela Albert recently co-authored a chapter in a college textbook entitled "Understanding Minority Serving Institutions." The book, to be published by SUNY Press, focuses on the history of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and their impact on society. Congratulations, Angela!
