The College Champion Awards honor individuals who have embraced the educational mission and progressive spirit of the college through exemplary commitment to our core values, campus pride, and community service. Nominations are open year-round and reviewed during the third week of May each year. These awards are from the college president, with assistance from the VOICES Committee. The awards will be presented at the Fall Opening meetings. To view the winners, click here.
