Four Germanna employees honored at Innovations Conference in Dallas

Four Germanna Community College employees are being honored at the League for Innovation in the Community College’s annual Innovations Conference going on through Wednesday in Dallas.
Named in honor of John E. and Suanne D. Roueche, leaders in the community college field and early proponents of the idea that every college employee has a role in how well students learn and succeed, the John and Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards celebrate outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff.
Germanna winners Win Stevens, Sally Cool
and Garland Fenwick in Dallas.
The Germanna winners are:  Sally Cool, Manager of ACC and Testing Services, Garland Fenwick,  Winferd Stevens, Coordinator of Disability Services and Michael C. Farris, former Financial Aid Coordinator. Farris returned to his hometown as Director of Financial Aid at Randolph College in Lynchburg in February.

Stevens said the conference provides an opportunity to tap into "new ideas to keep community colleges moving forward. This is a critical time for community colleges."
 He said being selected “is a great honor and I would like to thank all the great people who are working in community colleges who are giving their heart and soul to helping others.”
Sally Cool

Cool wrote:   “I am easily motivated just with watching our students grow and succeed knowing that our services had a hand in helping them on their way ... Communication is the key to a strong relationship with students as well as the college community. Perseverance is necessary to implement resources when they are needed and money is tight, and vision for the future; always thinking ahead of new initiatives that will keep improving the quality of our services. “

Garland Fenwick
“As a Facilities Manager, I am inspired and motivated to provide the most effective and efficient facilities,” Fenwick wrote.  “ I feel by providing safe and well maintained buildings and grounds, it creates an atmosphere that contributes to student learning. “

“I am truly honored to have been selected for this award,” Farris wrote. “I will continue to work hard so that students can achieve their dreams. Thanks to all who helped make this possible.”

 More than 800 colleges are League members.  According to its Web site, “The goal is to assist community colleges in developing policies, programs, and practices that place learning at the heart of the educational enterprise, while overhauling the traditional architecture of education.”
The organization is based in Chandler, Ariz.
