Last year, the League for Innovation in the Community College established the John & Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards as a tribute to outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff. Foothill's recipients will receive commemorative medallions and certificates at a special reception at the league's Innovations conference in March. In addition, during the conference’s keynote address by John and Suanne Roueche, the recipients will stand to have their specially cast medallions donned as part of the closing session.
John Roueche, president of the Roueche Graduate Center, National American University, and co-founder of the Roueche Excellence Awards, said, “It’s a terrific recognition of the quality of work that community colleges do across the country.” According to Dr. Roueche, receiving Excellence Awards is “the very first time for most of these faculty and staff that anyone officially recognized them, thanked them for the tremendous contribution they make to our colleges, to our students, and to our communities.”
