CCC seeks nominations for Distinguished Service Award 2020


Nominations are being accepted for the Coconino Community College Distinguished Service Award 2020.



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 each year, 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.


“I look forward to the Distinguished Service Award because it recognizes the selfless efforts of a college supporter dedicated to putting our student first,” said CCC President Dr. Colleen A. Smith, PhD.


The Distinguished Service Award Committee meets once a year to review nominations, and an award is not necessarily presented each year. Past recipients of the award include Coconino County Supervisor Lena Fowler, former Mayor Joe Donaldson and former Northern Arizona University Presidents Dr. Eugene Hughes and Dr. John Haeger among others.


The deadline for nomination is April 1, 2020. Nomination forms may be found online at If a candidate is chosen for the award, the award is presented at the CCC Foundation’s Annual Meeting, Alumni Awards and Breakfast in September.
