In higher education, our students’ testimony is the most powerful affirmation of the value of the work we do each and every day. This year, NVCC recognizes English Professor Beth-Ann Scott with the 2014 Educational Excellence Award.
Professor Scott is an engaging, knowledgeable, caring, and experienced professional who is committed to the success and vision of NVCC. She raises the bar for English coursework and has been instrumental in statewide efforts to improve student success and retention, particularly as pertains to the Governor's PA-1240 initiative.
Professor Scott has developed and piloted new courses and approaches to teaching, coordinated national grants, and kept us all informed at every level. Most importantly, she has done so while preserving the admiration and respect of her students and colleagues.
