Tallahassee Community College’s Division of Workforce Development has been named a finalist for the coveted 2023 Bellwether Award by the Bellwether College Consortium.
Thirty community colleges were named as finalists in three categories. TCC is one of ten finalists in the Workforce Development category which identifies strategic alliances that promote community and economic development. Other categories are Instructional Programs and Services which recognizes programs and services that foster or support teaching and learning in the community college, and Planning, Governing, and Finance which recognizes programs or activities that improve efficiency and effectiveness in the community college.
“It's an absolute honor to be recognized as a top 10 finalist for the Bellwether Award for the second year in a row and a national leader in workforce development,” said Dr. Kimberly A. Moore, Vice President for Workforce Innovation at TCC. “This recognition speaks to the hard work and committed effort of my team and our shared belief that the work we’re doing not only impacts our region and state but also the nation.”
Finalists will compete at the 29th Annual Community College Futures Assembly (CCFA), being held February 26-28 in San Antonio, Texas. College teams will conduct presentations to a jury of anonymous judges and fellow community college practitioners and CEOs and share how they significantly addressed a critical issue affecting community colleges.
