The Niagara College Student Administrative Council (NCSAC) celebrated scholarship winners, Educators of the Year and NCSAC Clubs and Volunteers at the first annual Night of Excellence on Friday, April 17th at Club Roma in St. Catharines.
Nominated by the students, the criteria for the Educator of the Year nominees include their ability to have positively changed, impacted or contributed to the success of a single student’s life.
Hailed as “the glue that holds the Human Resources Management program together”, Co-ordinator of Niagara College’s Human Resources programs, Dr. Holly Catalfamo, was chosen as the 2014-15 full-time Educator of the Year.
The part-time Educator of the Year award went to Susan English for her work in Accounting in the Business, Hospitality and Environmental Studies department.
“The Night of Excellence is an opportunity for NCSAC to celebrate student success, leadership and volunteerism while also recognizing the impact of the Niagara College faculty on our students,” said NCSAC President, Shane Malcolm. “Each professor has an important role to play in enriching lives and fulfilling the dreams of our students, and we want to continue to provide an opportunity for our students to share those stories,” continued Malcolm.
