Three retiring CCCS college presidents have been selected by the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society (PTK) to receive the prestigious Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award.
Dr. Diana Doyle, president of Arapahoe Community College (ACC), Ronald Granger, president of Colorado Northwestern Community College (CNCC), and Dr. Betsy Oudenhoven, president of Community College Aurora (CCA), will be recognized alongside five other award recipients on April 8, 2021, during PTK’s Catalyst 2021 annual convention. The event will be broadcasted live from Orlando, Florida, see conference information here.
The Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award is given to retiring college presidents who have shown strong support of student success on their campus by recognizing academic achievement, leadership, and service among high-achieving students over the course of their careers. Recipients are nominated by the students on their campus and is recognition in itself for their commitment to student success throughout their career.
“I am very honored to receive this award, especially knowing that my nomination came from great colleagues and students at ACC,” said Dr. Doyle, president of Arapahoe Community College. “It’s easy to support ACC’s Sigma Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and its programs when they are being led by such a dedicated and talented team of advisors and students.”
Congratulations to all honorees!
