Eastern Wyoming College Trustee, John Patrick, was selected to receive the 2016 Western Regional Trustee Leadership Award from the Association of Community College Trustees. Patrick will receive this award at the Regional Awards Luncheon during the 47th Annual ACCT Leadership Congress, which will take place in New Orleans, LA, October 5-6. Patrick will also be the sole nominee from his region for the M. Dale Ensign Trustee Leadership Award. This award will be presented also at the Congress.
“John Patrick has devoted a number of years to EWC in service on our Board. This award is well deserved and brings very positive recognition to him and the College,” said EWC President Dr. Richard Patterson.
Any trustee or former trustee of an ACCT member two-year postsecondary institution board or state board for two-year postsecondary institutions is eligible to receive this award. ACCT Board members currently serving are not eligible for nomination.
The Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT), in its regional awards program, annually recognizes one trustee, equity program, chief executive officer, faculty member, and professional board staff member in each of its five regions for their tremendous contributions to community colleges.
ACCT’s Annual Association Awards are selected from the recipients of the Regional Awards. (In order to be considered for an Association Award, you must submit a nomination and be awarded at the regional level.)
Additionally, ACCT honors individuals who strive to promote community colleges in the public sector with a National Education Service Award and a Government Relations Award. These awards are given out during ACCT’s National Legislative Summit.
