And the winners are…!
President David Harrison addresses the crowd at the first annual Quality Improvement Awards luncheon held July 27 in the Conference Center ballroom.
The recipients of the 2010 Distinguished Teaching Awards and Employees of the Month were recognized, and awards were announced for Distinguished Full Professors and CQI Teams. Full professors selected for the award were Steve Abbott, English, Greg Goodhart, Mathematics, and Jackie Miller, Nursing.
The first Silver Team Award went to the Developmental Education Block Program (team members Tywan Banks, Tracy Koski, Sue Hargrove and Pat Rowe), for their work helping at-risk students acclimate to college. The second Silver Team Award went to the Cost Instructional Model Team (members Aletha Shipley, Jaimie Allen, Michele Arnold, Jan Ellis, Laurie Johns, Karen Riley and Don White), for their work keeping costs in line while Columbus State moves from a quarter-based year into semesters. The Gold Team Award went to the Math Summer Bridge Initiative (team members Kelly Hogan, Tywan Banks, Beth Barnett, Jessica Lickeri, Brenna Michelis and Kathy Struve), for their intensive program for students in Dev Ed 031, Math 102 and Math 103—moving them successfully into Math 104!
