Each year, students, faculty, administration, staff, and people from the community have an opportunity to nominate an outstanding instructor for the Robert Wendell Eaves Distinguished Teaching Award. Recognition and a monetary award are given to the instructor selected each year. The winner is announced during the graduation ceremonies at the end of spring semester. To be eligible, the instructor must be a full-time employee of Isothermal Community College and must spend at least 25% of his/her employment in teaching. Nomination forms can be obtained November through February at the college switchboard, in Student Services, in the library, from the secretaries in Applied Sciences and Technology, Arts and Sciences, and Business Sciences, and at The Foundation. The recipient is then the nominee from Isothermal for the North Carolina Community College System Excellence in Teaching annual award. The objective of this award is to identify and individually recognize faculty who have consistently demonstrated excellence in teaching to their students and college.
