Eleven members of the St. Louis Community College faculty and staff have earned awards for teaching and leadership.

The John and Suanne Roueche Excellence Awards were established in 2012 by the League for Innovation in the Community College in recognition of the long tradition of excellence in community college teaching and leadership.

Florissant Valley recipients are Patricia Barnes, manager of assessment; Anne Marie Mosher, professor of mathematics;  Nancy Pea, associate professor of nursing; and Howard Rosenthal, professor of human services.

Forest Park recipients are Tom Rogers, copy technician in auxiliary services; and Dan Yezbick, professor of English.

Meramec award winners are Christie Cohoon, assistant professor in physical therapist assistant program; Dennis Dufer, associate professor of communications;  Suzzie Huff, academic advisor; and Amanda White, associate professor of sociology.

The Wildwood recipient is Afzal Lodhi, professor of science.

John E. and Suanne D. Roueche, 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, have been partners and friends of the League for Innovation in the Community College for more than 35 years. What began as a working relationship with the founders of the league has evolved into a full-fledged partnership through collaborative efforts on projects of mutual interest and national concern.

The Roueche Excellence Awards are open to League alliance member institutions to celebrate outstanding contributions and leadership by community college faculty and staff.
