— Dr. M. Richard Shaink, President of Mott Community College, has been chosen as the recipient of the 2010 Central Regional Chief Executive Officer Award.
This award is presented annually by the Washington-based Association of Community College Trustees (ACCT) in recognition of the nation’s top community college CEOs.
The award will be presented at the ACCT Annual Community College Leadership Congress in Toronto, Canada Oct. 20-23.
This award is one of five Regional Chief Executive Officer Awards awarded at the ACCT conference and also means Shaink is automatically the sole nominee from the Midwest region for the prestigious national Marie Y. Martin CEO Award to be decided at the same conference.
MCC Board Chair Lenore Croudy said, “I am very pleased that Dr. Shaink has received this national recognition from his peers around the country by having been chosen as the recipient of the 2010 ACCT Central Region Chief Executive Officer Award. This award is given in recognition of the outstanding leadership and contributions made by community college presidents across the country. Our community should be proud to see Dr. Shaink receive this most prestigious and well-deserved award.” — G.G.
