Kudos to Tom Gordon: Thank you for presenting the Faculty Report at the NMC’s Board of Trustees meeting! You put together a thoughtful presentation that showcased your sabbatical work around teaching history and competency-based learning. Your passion for teaching and innovation was the perfect example of faculty excellence here at NMC.

Kudos to the NMC Community: I wanted to thank our NMC Community for rising to the call for professional clothing donations as a part of the NMC Virtual Career Fair. The response has been larger than we imagined and we will continue to offer this for students as long as it is needed with the help of the NMC Food Pantry. Your overwhelming support for this project has helped our students with something as simple as an outfit to wear to an interview.

Kudos to Steve Kellman: Steve is always so efficient in getting website updates posted. And I really appreciate his patience and kindness, correcting my errors and directing me back to the style manual (probably hoping I’ll learn more!).

Kudos to Amy Trouslot: Amy Trouslot has taken on the added responsibilities of coordinating and overseeing the NMC Nursing Student participation in the COVID Vaccination Clinic in Traverse City. This is a great thing she’s done in providing this service to the community and also giving students the opportunity to serve. Thank you Amy for your heart for nursing.

Kudos to Fourth Semester Nursing Students: Participation in the COVID vaccination clinics! Their willingness to serve the community in such an important way!

Kudos to Mac Beeker: Mac has led the efforts to initiate the use of an Admissions Assessment for the NMC Nursing Program. His efforts will help us to ensure that the students have the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to set them up for success in the nursing programs.
