April is a month of Celebration!
On March 30th I attended our college’s 2012 Service Awards Luncheon. The college had 17 faculty and staff who celebrated 25 years of service, 11 faculty and staff who celebrated 30 years of service, and 10 faculty and staff who celebrated 35 years of service. Congratulations to Annandale Campus faculty Don Devers, Dean Haledjian, Richard Pellerin, and Richard Thompson who were among the 7 faculty and staff members who celebrated 40 years of service. What an impressive milestone!
On April 10, I joined the celebration for the Annandale Campus 2012 Annual Student Art Show winners. Their work is displayed throughout the 3rd floor of the CM building, and I encourage you to take a few minutes to walk around and view the impressive talent of our students.
Later this month I will have the opportunity to share in each division’s student honors ceremonies. The creative talent and intellectual achievements of our students are amazing.
Later this week I will have the pleasure of attending the 2012 Faculty of the Year reception sponsored by The NVCC Alumni Board and the Educational Foundation. This annual event recognizes outstanding faculty across the college.
This month is a time to reflect on the mission of the college and the positive impact each one of us who works at NOVA has on our students. Congratulations to all faculty, staff and students.
