RCC honors four Faculty for Outstanding Service to College, Community
Rappahannock Community College is proud to honor the following faculty members who have served the College and their community in outstanding ways over the 2016-17 school year — Profs. Ruth Greene, Lisa Merritt, Bob Parker and Lisa Tuckey.
Professor Ruth Greene received the Faculty Award for Professional Excellence in Service. Greene is a professor of information systems technology, and outside of RCC, she serves Warsaw’s Northern Neck Regional Jail (NNRJ). The NNRJ created a service award in her honor — “The Ruth Greene Award for Service.” The award, born from her selfless service, awards people who volunteer to make it a better place without expectations for anything in return. Greene developed a customized annual evaluation document for jail employees, which helped the NNRJ operate the facility smoothly and securely.
Professor Lisa Merritt recognized for her teaching effectiveness. This award is voted on by the faculty and is presented at the end of the Spring semester yearly. Prof. Merritt teaches biology at the College.
Professor Bob Parker received the Faculty Award for Professional Excellence in Service. Parker is known at RCC as the math program lead, but outside of the school, Parker is an active Scout Master for over 14-years and recently accepted the Distinguished Citizen Award from the Northumberland Association for Progressive Stewardship.
Professor Lisa Tuckey received the Faculty Award for Professional Excellence in Leadership. Tuckey holds leadership positions within the College on several committees and represents RCC at many off-campus functions as well. Tuckey teaches biology at the College.
The four were honored at RCC’s bi-annual convocation, which was held this year at Beth-Page Campground in Middlesex County.
