Timothy Roach, Ph.D., professor of English at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood, was awarded the John and Suanne Roueche Excellence Award at the recent League for Innovation in the Community College's Annual Conference.

The league is an international organization specifically committed to improving community colleges through innovation, experimentation and institutional transformation.

John E. and Suanne D. Roueche are leaders in the community college field and early proponents of the idea that teachers have major responsibility for how well students perform in the classroom.

Roach was recognized for his outstanding contributions and leadership to the college.

Roach joined St. Louis Community College as a professor of English at the Forest Park campus in 1996. In addition to his teaching duties, he served as an administrative intern in the office of the vice chancellor for education and as a writer for the Higher Learning Commission accreditation self-study process.

Roach's doctorate in rhetoric and composition and master’s degree in English are from the University of Louisville. He also holds bachelor’s degrees in art and political science from the University of North Florida. He earned an associate degree in general transfer studies from Florida Community College at Jacksonville.

He has been a professor at the Wildwood campus since its opening in 2007.
