The Outstanding Faculty Member of the Year Award recipient is selected by vote of the student body.  This was the first time in the college’s history to have a 3-way tie.  MCC Chief Academic Officer Dr. Deborah Cox stated during the presentation, “These faculty members consistently receive very high student evaluations of instruction and are recognized by their peers as valued colleagues.  They are looked to as leaders at this college for their vision, commitment to student learning, and hard work.  They are faculty who spend the time needed to help struggling students whether in or out of class.  They do not see their job as done until they have reached every student.  I am impressed with these faculty members and look forward to watching their careers continue at this institution.”

Hernandez-Stevenson, of Greenville, is a Communications Instructor in the Humanities Division.  She began her teaching career at MCC in 2015.

Allen, of Madisonville, has been with MCC since 2013 and is an Assistant Professor in the Applied Technology Division teaching in the Mining program.

Shockley, of Madisonville, is an Associate Professor in the Social Sciences Division teaching in the Computer and Information Technologies program.  She has been employed with MCC since 2007.
