NCK Tech Staff Recognized with 212° Award
At 211 degrees water is hot, at 212 degrees it boils. One degree makes all the difference. To recognize NCK Tech staff who demonstrate superior dedication and the willingness to go the extra degree, the college is pleased to announce the first recipient of the 212° Award!
Recipients of this award are employees who demonstrate a positive attitude and commitment to their profession, students, fellow employees, and a loyalty to the mission of NCK Tech. Eligible recipients are nominated by fellow employees and the award winner is selected by a committee of five NCK Tech employees. The award will be presented twice a year, during the Fall and Spring semesters. Ian Draemel, NCK Tech’s Information Technology Director, was the recipient of the Fall 2013 award. Ian was honored during a faculty In-service meeting and presented a 212° Award trophy. In addition, his name was added to the 212° Award plaque, which displays all award recipients, and he received a letter of commendation and a gift certificate to a local restaurant.
