Arcade, New York — Genesee Community College at Arcade is pleased to announce the Fall 2011 Student and Instructor of the Semester. Each semester, one student and one instructor are awarded the honor for their academic or teaching performance. Anne R. Heale of Arcade has been selected as the Instructor of the Semester and Terry R. Parker of Chaffee has been selected as the Student of the Semester.
The recipient of the 2010 SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Professional Service, Anne has been an academic advisor at the Arcade Campus Center for close to 12 years. Recently she added to her existing face-to-face consulting work by creating a Facebook account to help keep students up-to –date on events and issues that are of interest to them. Student comments included: “She gave up her free time to help us.”
A previous recipient of Student of the Semester, Terry is an adult student who has been attending Arcade for over two years. A Human Services major, Terry is known for his readiness to give other students a helping hand. Teacher comments included: “Terry's attitude has been very positive” and “He never says no when asked (to help).”
Student of the Semester is chosen through a nomination form by an instructor which includes a narrative as to why the student deserves the award. The forms are collected by the Campus Center staff and, in the case of more than one nomination, each of the five staff members (Campus Center dean, secretary and three associates) each cast one vote to select the award winner. The process for the Instructor of the Semester Award is the same, except that the teachers are nominated by their students.
The Arcade Campus Center is located at 25 Edward Street Arcade. For further information please call 585-492-5265.
