The Awards Committee included: Lyle McCurdy from Cal Poly Pomona, Dean
Athans from East Los Angeles College, and Iraj Borbor from DeVry
Institute of Technology.
Irvin Drew from El Camino College (Vice Chair, Community Colleges) participated in the selection of the Outstanding Community College Educator Award.
The committee received the nominations and excerpts from the Awards Nomination Information pamphlet via U.S. mail. We used e-mail as the primary means of communication. After each committee member reviewed the nominations, he e-mailed me his vote for each category. The votes for the DOW and Outstanding Teaching Awards were unanimous. The vote for the Outstanding Community College Educator Award split: 3 for Bob Stevenson and 1 for Keith Level (Irvin Drew participated in this vote and provided his input via the phone).
I received the following nominations (the bolded names indicate the award recipients for 1997):
