Kudos to Nancy Gray:  Nancy has served several years as the Chair of Faculty Council. As a member of the communications faculty, she has modeled all of the varied communication skills to lead the faculty and collaborate with all of the other employee and learner groups. At times, Nancy’s work as Chair of FC has been exhausting…both physically, spiritually and emotionally. She’s been a tireless leader; always learning and including others in the process. When NMC really needed her, she said yes. With respect and gratitude, we wish Nancy the best in her future work.

Kudos to Dr. Nick Roster:  Dr. Roster is my mentor as a new full time faculty in the Sci-Math Division.  I am struck by his willingness to take on new classes, extra students, meetings or new tasks to help make NMC better for students.  He is constantly teaching himself new technologies in his classes which motivate his students to succeed and to enjoy learning. Furthermore in making decisions about what he teaches, he fist asks himself-“What will the students need to know and to DO in the workplace. That is what I need to focus on.”

Kudos to April Kesler:  AST and ARC/STSA (Accreditation Review Council on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting) invited April Kesler to participate in a two-day summit in Denver, Colorado fall of 2018. The summit will be a gathering of a select group of educators to develop a future course for surgical technology education and to work toward achieving a consensus in establishing attainable goals and overall direction to guide the future of surgical technology education. Congratulations to April on being selected!
