Instructor Honored at International Conference

June 07, 2018

Charlotte C. Brow, a department chair at Wayne Community College, was honored at a recent international conference for community and technical college educators.

Department Chair Charlotte Brow was presented an Excellence Award at this year’s International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence.

Mrs. Brow, the chair of the college’s Humanities, Fine Arts and Social Sciences Department who also teaches history, was presented an “Excellence Award” at the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development’s International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence in Austin, Texas. She was recognized for outstanding service and teaching excellence and presented a special medallion that will become part of her formal attire for commencement and other academic ceremonies.

She also received a certificate, and inclusion in a special awards booklet and on a page the NISOD website dedicated to the winners.

Excellence Awards recognize the work of faculty, administrators, and staff for extraordinary service to their students, colleagues, and community. Individual college’s set their own criteria; for WCC, it is selection as a George E. Wilson Excellence in Teaching Award recipient. Mrs. Brow won the Wilson Award in 2012.

Mrs. Brow was presented her medallion during a special dinner and celebration at the NISOD annual conference. Four other WCC faculty members who did not attend the conference were also recognized and will be given their awards later by WCC President Thomas A. Walker Jr. on the college’s campus.

The other WCC honorees are
