HCC President & Staff at NISOD
WELDON, N.C. – HCC President, Dr. Ervin V. Griffin, Sr. & Director of Student Support Services, Ms. Sherida Gholston were recently selected to make a presentation at the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) International Conference on Teaching and Leadership Excellence in Austin, Texas. The presentation was entitled: Leading Forward: Developing Future Leaders at a Rural Community College.

"Leading Forward" was an interactive workshop that provided training into the elusive area of leadership development. The presenters focused on the implementation of the 3 years old leadership training institution that has provided excellent training for all of the campus community at HCC.

The participants in the workshop also had the opportunity to learn about the genesis and ongoing strategies used at HCC to develop leaders in our rural community college settings. In addition, the "Leading Forward" model was discussed in detail and all participants were given a copy of the presentation to use with their respective leadership programs.

President Griffin and Ms. Gholston represented HCC at the Excellence Awards Dinner and Celebration for 2015. The recipients at HCC who will receive the NISOD Excellence Award for 2015 are John Foriest, Beth Gray-Robertson, Caroline Harris, Adriane Leche, Lisa Santiago, Jason Shotwell, and Cynthia Walker.
