Each year, faculty, administrators and staff have the opportunity to honor fellow co-workers by nominating someone that they feel has made an outstanding contribution to Long Beach City College. This award stands out as a coveted recognition because the recipients are nominated and selected by their colleagues and peers. Members of the College’s Renewal Committee review all of the nominations and ultimately select representatives who best exemplify a colleague’s exceptional knowledge and abilities in the performance of their job, as well as campus leadership roles. It also recognizes work in the community that enhances the image of the college along with the nominees’ generosity in sharing their time and talent for the benefit of LBCC students, colleagues, and the greater college community. Over the past 33 years over one thousand LBCC employees have been nominated, but only a small group of just 129 employees have earned this prestigious award.
