Announcement: John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards
In recognition of the long tradition of excellence in community college teaching and leadership, the League established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards in 2012. These awards are open to League Alliance member institutions to celebrate outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff. Recipients are recognized in a series of activities and promotions, and honored at special events at the League's Innovations conference each spring.
Over 400 people from 125 Alliance member colleges were awarded 2013 Excellence Awards. More than half of the recipients were able to attend Innovations 2014 in Anaheim, CA, to receive their medallions and the acknowledgement they so richly deserve. Special Excellence Awards activities, including a kick-off event and the closing ceremony, were well attended, and awardees were applauded wherever they went. The League is proud to have had so many awards recipients at this conference, and hope to see many more in Boston next year.
The League will send all 2013 Excellence Awards certificates, as well as remaining medallions and programs, to participating college presidents/chancellors in mid-April. College leaders will distribute these items of recognition to recipients according to the preferences of individual institutions.
