RCCs Ghimire to receive Excellence Award

A Rappahannock Community College associate professor of accounting and business, Pradeep Ghimire, has recently been nominated to receive one of the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Excellence Awards. Ghimire will attend NISOD’s 35th annual International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence in Austin, Texas, May 26-29, and will receive a medallion and certificate commemorating his achievement.

The academic dean of RCC’s Glenns Campus, Robert Griffin, cites Ghimire’s “positive attitude with students, his willingness to teach at multiple locations and in different formats, and his work developing online accounting courses and submitting them for peer review” as factors influencing the college to choose him for this honor. Warsaw Campus dean Patricia Mullins mentions also “his contributions to updating the accounting certificate program, and creating new accounting courses for the revised business management degree.”

Ghimire joined RCC in Fall 2010 with a wealth of knowledge, experience, and honors to his credit. He holds the degrees of bachelor of engineering in mechanical engineering from India’s Bhopal University, and master of business administration from the University of Mississippi. Before coming to RCC, Ghimire held faculty positions at Rust College in Mississippi, and Palo Alto College, St. Mary’s University, and Northeast Lakeview College, all in Texas. He has also held a variety of non-teaching positions with private engineering and business concerns in Nepal and the United States.

The NISOD Conference is the largest of its kind that focuses on community colleges. Over 1800 educational professionals from around the world will gather to learn about new strategies and tools currently available to support teaching and leadership excellence.
