Community College Week and the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) have announced the winners of the annual Scott Wright Student Essay Contest, and winners were recently honored at the NISOD annual conference in Austin, Texas.
The award is named for a former editor at Community College Week, Scott Wright, who is a highly regarded and award-winning journalist. Students who entered the contest were asked to write about a faculty member, staff member, or administrator who made an impact on their education.
The three winning students and the three employees featured in the essays each received an award of $1,000, plus recognition at the NISOD conference. Additionally, each student’s college received a complimentary 2018-2019 NISOD membership.
