ASCC Recognizes Outstanding Faculty Achievement

As part of its faculty orientation held at the beginning of every spring and fall semester, the American Samoa Community College (ASCC) held its 3rd Annual Faculty Recognition Awards Ceremony last week to highlight the achievements of both individuals and departments over the last twelve months. Fresh from a morning of orientation activities that included a detailed tour of the Agriculture, Community and Natural Resources (ACNR)/Land Grant facilities, the ASCC faculty were welcomed to the lunchtime ceremony by ASCC President Dr. Rosevonne Makaiwi Pato, whose opening remarks included the analogy of a teaching career being like an electrical battery, or in other words, something that needs to be kept properly charged.
