CCC honors contributors

CLINTON — The Clinton Community College Alumni Association recently honored contributors during an awards ceremony.

This is the 33rd year of celebrating contributions made to CCC.

The 2014 Outstanding awards were presented to:

Outstanding Business Associate — RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program). Under the guidance of Tammy Meyer for nearly 39 years, RSVP has partnered with CCC on the ENCORE Program — Enrichment Course for Retirees — for many years. Each year, Meyer and her RSVP volunteers gather program ideas, treats, lunch and dozens of participants for this program.

Outstanding Friend of the College — Art Ollie. A retired educator and state legislator, Art Ollie has served as president of the Paul B. Sharar Foundation for one year. During his tenure, Ollie has attended dinners representing the Sharar Foundation, has been part of the accreditation process, and has written articles in support of CCC for Community College Month.

Outstanding College Volunteers — CCC Fine Arts committee. College events do not take place without the involvement of students, staff and faculty. Dee Elkins, Katie, Sally Myers and Beth Hafner rarely miss a Fine Arts committee meeting or participation in an event. They have volunteered with setup for CCC student art exhibit, with high school Fine Arts Day, with sales of student postcards and with the origination, leadership and support of Writer’s Jam.

Outstanding Alumnus — James Law. As a 1989 CCC graduate, James Law is building his business — SOL-R-WIND — of renewable energy in the community, and said he wants to hire CCC graduates into his workforce.

Law spoke to the CCC student leaders in 2013, sharing his thoughts on leadership and encouraging students to dream big and to follow their dreams.

Outstanding faculty/staff member — Glenn Williams. Throughout his time at CCC, Williams has found ways to be involved beyond the classroom. He offers assistance to staff and faculty in training on the classroom technology, and demonstrates the smartboards or offers tours of the IT lab for prospective students. Williams is committed to a variety of community organizations including Toys for Tots, VFW, Honor Flights and the Izaak Walton League.
