RCC instructors nominated for Chancellor’s Award

Four instructors working with Rappahannock Community College’s Workforce Development (WFD) Office were recently honored with nominations for the annual Virginia Community College System (VCCS) Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Workforce Training and Instruction. Nominees are selected based on course evaluations, years of service, assistance to the college in program development, and support of the college in serving Virginia’s workforce and community.

In the category of employer services (customized training, including assessments of employer needs, and preparation and teaching of training tailored to the employer’s needs), RCC’s nominee was Annette Kane-Shine. For occupation-specific instruction and services (student support services and credit- and noncredit-bearing courses leading to certification and other credentials), the nominee was Gary Riedel. For Career Paths (transitional instruction and services preparing participants to be successful as college students and later as employees), the nominee was Victoria Holt; and for community services (delivering courses and programs focused on personal growth and leisure that contribute to community well-being), the nominee was Jeff Logan.
