Wytheville Community College is now accepting nominations for the 2020 Distinguished Service Awards Program. The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 1, 2020.
This program, which consists of a teaching award and a service award, was established in 1990 by Nathaniel W. Pendleton, Jr., and his family in memory of his father, Nathaniel W. Pendleton, Sr., who was a Wytheville construction company executive and member of the Virginia House of Delegates. He was instrumental in passing legislation in 1962 that established Wytheville Community College and provided its operating funds. He passed away in 1968.
The Distinguished Teaching and the Distinguished Service Awards carry cash prizes. The program is intended to recognize excellence in teaching and to acknowledge outstanding service to the college. Any full‑ or part‑time WCC faculty member is eligible for the Teaching Award, and the recipient will also receive a special fund to be used for personal academic enhancement. The Service Award may be conferred upon any current or past employee of WCC, local board or foundation board member, alumnus, or friend of WCC.
