Amy Fleming named NTCC’s 2018 NISOD Excellence recipient
Northshore Technical Community College is proud to announce its recipient of the annual NISOD Excellence Awards. NTCC’s 2018 honoree is Ms. Amy Fleming, Liberal Arts and Humanities Department Chair and Instructor of English.

NISOD’s Excellence Awards recognize men and women each year who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment and contribution to their students and colleagues. In 1989, in connection with a University of Texas at Austin national study of teaching excellence, NISOD hosted its first ceremony honoring NISOD Excellence Award recipients. The response to that ceremony was so positive that NISOD began what has become the largest and most inspiring gathering that recognizes the contributions and achievements of community and technical college faculty, administrators, and staff.

"I am incredibly honored to be named the 2018 NISOD Excellence Award recipient for Northshore Technical Community College. I am so fortunate to work with such exemplary educators every day and have such supportive administrators at this college who encourage us to strive for our best," states Amy Fleming.

NTCC Chancellor, Dr. William Wainwright, believes “Amy Fleming represents the best of our college values. Her dedication to student success and her holistic approach to student advising and leadership development ensures our graduates a solid foundation to build futures.”

Excellence Award recipients will be celebrated during NISOD’s annual International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence, May 26-29, in Austin, Texas. During the Excellence Awards Dinner and Celebration, held in conjunction with NISOD’s annual conference, each Excellence Award recipient receives a specially cast, pewter medallion hung on a burnt-orange ribbon. The names, titles, and colleges of all Excellence Award recipients are included in a special booklet that features congratulatory ads from many of the recipients’ colleges. In addition, presentations at the conference involving Excellence Award recipients are indicated in the Conference Program with a special icon.

“Recognizing those individuals who have contributed to student success and their colleges’ mission is something we look forward to doing each year,” says Dr. Edward J. Leach, NISOD’s Executive Director. “The extraordinary work of these men and women includes not only what they do for their students and colleagues, but what they do for the communities in which they live and work. We’re honored to be able to play a part in celebrating their achievements.”
