During its 7th annual Alumni Reception and Awards Ceremony, NMCC’s Alumni and Friends Organization recognized an outstanding member and chose its leadership team.
The Organization, made up of graduates and friends of the College, presents the Torchbearer award to a member who has shown exemplary service to the group over a number of years. Tomi Henderson of Mars Hill, a Drafting Technology graduate from the class of ’98, was chosen unanimously by the Organization.
“Tomi has consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty to benefit the College and our Organization,” said outgoing President Mark Bouchard. “Tomi is thoroughly connected with the community serving in several civic capacities. She volunteers at every function of the Alumni Organization and takes part in every event.”
Also during the reception the group honored the Instructor of the Year, Psychology instructor Shelli Good, with a plaque.
