Catawba Valley Community College’s Learning & Personal Enrichment Innovation Center was recently awarded the North Carolina Community Colleges Adult Educators Association’s (NCCCAEA) 2014 Innovation Award.
CVCC was recognized for its creativity and innovation in programming, management practice, communication, marketing, or customer service in continuing education programs.
CVCC’s Learning & Personal Enrichment Innovation Center consists of both the departments of Community Enrichment as well as Basic Skills Education. Both areas have unique accomplishments which have served Catawba and Alexander county residents, ages 6 to 100, in a way which has led to several N.C. Community College System Office administrators dubbing the programs a “model for the State.”
CVCC’s Summerscapes program for children has the largest enrollment in the state of North Carolina.
A ground-breaking collaboration between the Basic Skills Education Division and Human Resources Development program led to unprecedented success in serving hundreds of new students with the English Language Civics Grant.
CVCC’s Learning & Personal Enrichment Innovation Center is under the direction of Executive Director Chanell Morello, with Cheri Toney serving as director of Community Enrichment.
