Piedmont Tech One of Three Colleges Getting Awards


  Piedmont Technical College was among top winners honored during the 2013 Community College Futures Assembly held in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The 19th annual Bellwether Awards involved selecting leading edge programs in community college practice worthy of replicating.

The winners are: Elgin Community College (Elgin, Illinois) in the Instructional Programming and Services (IPS) category, Piedmont Technical College (Greenwood, South Carolina) in the Planning, Governance, and Finance (PGF) category, and Chattanooga State Community College (Chattanooga, Tennessee) in the Workforce Development (WD) category.

Dale F. Campbell, Professor and Director of the Community College Futures Assembly and Institute of Higher Education, said “In more than 1,200 national community colleges this is one of the highest honors an institute can receive. The awards are similar to being selected by your peers, comparable to the Oscar ®” or Emmy® Award.”
