Dr. Carol Marion, Guilford Technical Community College
An organization needs all kinds of leaders to be successful and NCCEI
has found its quiet leader, one who always leads by example, in Dr. Carol Marion
, the 2012 recipient of the Barbara Taylor Distinguished Service Award.
In 2011, Carol became secretary of NCCEI.
When committees are formed to plan conferences, Carol always replies, â€œPut me wherever you need me.â€ In 2009, she worked on the hospitality committee for TYCA-SE; in 2011 she served on the planning committee for the central region CEI one-day conference.
And in 2012 she was a member of the program committee.
At every conference, Carol
is one of those people who is the first to arrive and the last to leave.
Stocking hospitality rooms, setting up registration, stuffing goodie bags, collating materials for participant folders are all tedious, but necessary jobs in organizing a conference.
Wherever there is work to be done, Carol
is always there.
Board members have come to rely on Carolâ€™s voice of reason during meetings.
is a thoughtful speaker, one who has the courage of bringing up different points of view that challenge the majority opinion.
For all these reasons and more, Dr. Carol Marion
from Guilford Technical College
is this yearâ€™s Distinguished Service Award winner.
Please join us in congratulating on her
well deserved honor.
