Congratulations O’Neil Nelson on your latest award, the John and Suzanne Roueche Excellence Award, which you recieved at a ceremony in New York late last month. Keep being amazing O’Neil.
John E. and Suzanne 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 over thirty-five years.
What began as a working relationship with the founders of the League has eveolved into a full-fledged partnership through collaborative efforts on projects of mutual interest and national concern.
In recognition of the long tradition of excellence in community college teaching and leardership, the League established the John & Suanne Roueche Awards in 2012.
These awards are open to League Board and 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.
Wonderful to see AUT celebrating your successes on the AUT intranet and I understand the DCT newsletter this month included similar coverage of your successes.
