PCC scores 14 League of Innovation excellence award winners
In front of 40 guests in the North View Gallery on the Sylvania Campus, PCC Interim President Sylvia Kelley honored the recipients and gave them time to talk about what innovation means to them. Gathered guests included deans, staff, family and friends.
The League for Innovation in the Community College is an international non-profit organization dedicated to energizing the community college movement. Founded in 1968, they foster and celebrate community college innovation and experimentation that lead to student and institutional success.
John E. and Suanne D. Roueche, leaders in the community college field and early proponents of the idea that teachers have major responsibility for how well students perform in the classroom, have been partners and friends of the League for Innovation in the Community College for more than 35 years.
In recognition of their long tradition of excellence in community college teaching and leadership, the League established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards in 2012. PCC’s recipients were also recognized in March at the League’s Innovation’s national conference in Chicago.
