Six MCC faculty receive NISOD Excellence Award
Six Mott Community College faculty members were honored with a National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Excellence Award, in recognition of the high standards for teaching and dedication they bring to student learning and success, at the annual conference May 25 - 28.
The MCC honorees for the NISOD Excellence Award are Dr. Dalton Connally, Coordinator for the Social Work program, Debra Gibes, Faculty Director of Experiential Learning, Michelle Montpas, Director of the Nursing program, Candice Muñoz, Coordinator of the Communications program, James Shurter, Coordinator of the Graphic Design program, and Matthew Sullivan, Coordinator of the Electronics and Electrical programs.
"Our award winners are committed to their students' success, to great teaching, and to sharing their skills and knowledge with their peers," said Michelle Glenn, Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs. "We appreciate their hard work and dedication to their students and to Mott, and celebrate their recognition."
The NISOD Excellence Awards were established in 1991 to recognize individuals doing extraordinary work on their campuses. Using their own criteria, NISOD member colleges submit the names of faculty members each year who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment and contribution to their students and colleagues.
"Recognizing those individuals who have contributed to student success and their colleges' mission is something we look forward to doing each year," said Dr. Edward J. Leach, NISOD's Executive Director. "The extraordinary work of these men and women includes not only what they do for their students and colleagues, but what they do for the communities in which they live and work. We're honored to be able to play a part in celebrating their achievements."
NISOD is a membership organization committed to promoting and celebrating excellence in teaching, learning, and leadership at community and technical colleges.
