The faculty members each were nominated for the prestigious award by other faculty from within their own divisions.

Each of the faculty received special certificates and a specially cast pewter medallion.
The Innovations Conference is the premier event for professionals dedicated to improving organizational teaching and learning and discovering new approaches for enhancing the community college experience.
