The NOVA Service Awards Luncheon honoring faculty, adjunct faculty and staff completing 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 40 years of service with the College and the Commonwealth of Virginia was held on March 24 at the Westfields Marriott. It was a wonderful event and 306 people attended, enjoyed a buffet lunch and great music provided by George Mason University musicians, and reconnected with old and new colleagues. The emeriti faculty and staff were honored with plaques, a group photo and received their Emeritus NOVA Card. There were also plenty of raffle drawing prizes and a grand prize of an overnight stay with breakfast for two at the Westfields Marriott. Congratulations to all the winners!
Special thanks to President Scott Ralls, Donald Strehle (Board President, Northern Virginia Community College Educational Foundation, Inc.), Todd Rowley (NOVA Board Chair) and Charlotte Calobrisi for keeping the event fun and entertaining.
