The Michigan Community College Association (MCCA) recently recognized selected individuals for their achievements and service to their organizations over the past year.
Doug Jacobson, Mid Michigan College Trustee, was honored with the Distinguished Service Award. Jacobson has served as a trustee for Mid since 1996, and is also a longtime member of the MCCA Legislative Committee.
Terry Petrongelli was also honored in recognition of her ten years of service as a Mid Michigan College Trustee.
“Mid is lucky to have such a dedicated group of trustees. Their experience, guidance, and service to Mid cannot be overstated,” shared Mid President, Dr. Christine Hammond.
Mid was also proud to see two Mid employees graduate from the MCCA Leadership Academy. Greg Sieszputowski, Director of the Center for Learning and Leadership, and Jeremiah Wagner, Full-Time Science Instructor, completed the Leadership Academy program.
The MCCA Leadership Academy takes place over nine months, and is facilitated by MCCA and Lead Star. The program is designed for faculty and mid- to senior-level community college administrators who look to be leaders in their current positions or are ready to move into a higher level of leadership.
“The Leadership Academy is a rigorous program, and I’m very happy to see Mid employees taking on the challenge and succeeding. Building leaders at every level of the organization is vital to ensuring Mid stays relevant for the future,” said Hammond.
