The MVCC Heart of the Hawk award recognizes service and leadership excellence to students, colleagues, and the college by members of the teaching faculty. This recognition is awarded three times each academic year (October, January, and April) in order to allow the extraordinary efforts of MVCC teaching faculty to receive recognition in a timely fashion.
The MVCC Employee Recognition Workgroup screens all nominations and recommends candidates for confirmation by the College Cabinet. Each winner is formally recognized in a regularly scheduled meeting of the College Senate and receives a personal desk plaque. Their name also appears on the Heart of the Hawk wall plaque located in the MVCC Board Room in Payne Hall. (view list of recipients)
