Congratulations to the GSA for its ExCEL Nomination!

For the first time, College of Charleston can honor graduate faculty and students by nominating them for the Multicultural ExCEL Awards. The Graduate School Student of the Year and Graduate School Faculty of the Year are two new categories this year, and we couldn’t be more proud of each nominee!

The Multicultural ExCEL awards program is an annual benefit for the Parents of Diverse Students – “PODS” Foundation Fund.  Proceeds raised during this event will support need-based scholarships.

Join us on Tuesday, March 31 at 5:00 in the Sottile Theatre to recognize this year’s ExCEL awards recipients.  If you’re curious, below are the nominees for the two new categories:

Graduate Student of the Year
Tiffany Dixon
Dennis Kombe
Geoff Pallay
Kevin Pratt
Kelly Sloan

Graduate School Faculty of the Year
Michael Cipriano
Phil Jos
Amanda Ruth McSwain
Gladys Matthews
William Veal

Also, the Graduate Student Association was nominated as the Student Organization of the Year.  I’m a little biased, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for them.

Tickets for this event are on sale now and can be purchased at the Multicultural Center.  The public can purchase tickets for $15, while C of C faculty, staff and alumni can purchase them for $10.  There is no charge for the ExCEL nominees and their two guests, or for students with a valid ID.
