Nominate your favorite instructor for the Blessinger award

Have you had an instructor at St. Clair County Community College who had a great impact on your education, or your life?

Now — if you are a student, faculty or staff member at SC4 — you can pay them back by nominating them for the Del James Blessinger Award for Teaching Excellence.

The deadline to nominate is Friday, March 3, and information and the nomination form can be found on the Portal. Or, you can click here to download a nomination form.

The criteria is simple:

  • Excellence in the classroom, including knowledge and presentation of subject matter
  • Ability to inspire and motivate students in the classroom
  • Motivation of students to achieve outside the classroom
  • Service to the community

Past recipients cannot be nominated, and a list of those is available on the form.
