Our Community and Technical colleges touch the lives of thousands of people throughout our state. It’s impossible to count the ways the colleges affect students, graduates, employees, volunteers, employers and members of the community This is your opportunity to nominate someone who has been outstanding in our CTC system and deserves special recognition; these awards are ACT’s way of saying ‘thank you’ for the fantastic job people do day in and day out in service to these colleges and their students. A special awards ceremony and dinner will be held on May 12, 2016 during ACT’s spring convention hosted by Bellevue College. Additionally all nominees will be forwarded to ACCT for consideration of national recognition at the ACCT Congress this year in New Orleans.
