Wayne Community College’s unit of the Association of Educational Office Professionals (AEOP) was presented the North Carolina Association of Educational Office Professionals’ “2013-2014 Strive For Excellence Award.”
The honor was bestowed during the 63rd NCAEOP Conference held recently in Greensboro. It is given to one unit in the state each year.
The award is based on the participation of the unit’s members on committees, as officers, and in events and workshops; the professional certifications they hold; and the unit’s activities such as newsletters, scholarships, and service projects.
WCC AEOP was the District 13 winner of the award in 2013, which put it in competition for the 2014 statewide award. The college’s unit has received the state award multiple times in the past. Units are eligible to win it only once every three years.
The AEOP is a professional organization of educational office personnel and administrators. It provides its members educational opportunities, a professional standards certificate program, scholarships for member and students, a legislative platform, and awards at levels from the individual unit to the state organization.
