Classified Employee of the Year Award

Nominations due by February 10, 2014 – 12 NoonStudents

The California Community Colleges Board of Governors created the Classified Employee of the Year Award honoring community college classified employees who demonstrate the highest level of commitment to professionalism and community colleges. Every college district is invited to submit a nominee. Nominees must be classified employees with a minimum of 5 years of service as a permanent employee within the nominating Community College District (full-time or part-time).

All nominees will be evaluated on their commitment to the mission of community colleges; professional ethics and standards; serving the institution through participation in professional and/or community activities; and serving as a leader beyond the local institution. A $500 cash award and plaque will be presented to each statewide recipient at the May 2014 meeting of the Board of Governors. Any one may nominate an employee consistent with the criteria set by the CCC Board of Governors

Each district is allowed to submit one nomination. SMCCCD is soliciting the names of four proposed nominees, one each from the three colleges and the district office. At its February 26, 2014 meeting, The SMCCCD Board of Trustees will select one of the four nominees to submit to the Board of Governors. All four of the nominees will be recognized at the District Board meeting.

In 2009, using the College Council adopted process; Skyline College submitted the name of Barbara Daley who was subsequently selected by the SMCCCD Board as their nominee. Barbara Daley went on to become one of only five people statewide selected by the CCC Board of Governors. Subsequent nominations from Skyline College include Pat Carter, Sue Lorenzo, Maria Norris and Nancy Argarin.
