CCC seeks nominations for Distinguished Service Award

FLAGSTAFF Ariz. -- Coconino Community College is seeking nominations for its prestigious Distinguished Service Award.
The award recognizes outstanding service, leadership and support to the College and to the educational enrichment of Coconino County.
Nominees must be a resident of Coconino County at the time of nomination, and they must have affected or substantially contributed a major accomplishment for the benefit of CCC and to the educational enrichment of district residents.
The award is normally given to one recipient annually, and any resident of the county may nominate a person for the award. Current members of the CCC District Governing Board and individuals employed by the College are exempt from nomination.
"The Distinguished Service Award Committee meets once a year to review nominations," said Scott Talboom, Committee Chairman. "The award is not necessarily presented each year, and candidates must have truly demonstrated exceptional service to the college and to education in Coconino County to receive the award."
Past recipients of the award include former Mayor Joe Donaldson and former Northern Arizona University President Dr. John Haeger among others.
The deadline for nomination is the last day in February, which is Feb. 29 this year. Nomination forms may be found online at If a candidate is chosen for the award, the award is presented at the CCC Commencement Ceremony in May.
