The National Council for Workforce Education (NCWE) recently presented the John F. Grede Board Service Award to Steve Long, associate vice chancellor for workforce solutions at St. Louis Community College.
The John F. Grede Board Service Award is presented to past or current members of the NCWE Board of Directors who have given outstanding, extraordinary service to NCWE. This award is named after NCWE’s first president, John F. Grede, who served during 1975-76. Grede conceived the idea to establish the Council for Occupational Education during the mid-1970s when the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges’ Board of Directors adopted the concept of affiliated councils. His dedication and leadership to the council serves as the inspiration and standard for all who receive this award.
Long was nominated for this award by the NCWE Executive Board. In their nomination, colleagues made the following notation about Long and his service to NCWE:
“Steve Long is a most deserving recipient of the 2013 Grede Award for Board Leadership. He is a dedicated professional and exemplifies the meaning of service through the leadership he has provided NCWE. His knowledge and understanding of the breadth of issues surrounding workforce education, corporate training, community services, continuing education and community partnerships makes him an extremely valuable NCWE board member.”
Long has been an employee of St. Louis Community College for 25 years and an NCWE member for 18 years.
