"The college appreciates the work of our adjunct faculty," said Dr. Jody Tomanek, area vice-president of academic affairs and North Platte Community College. "They give up their time after work or during the day to help us educate students. We couldn't offer some of the classes we do without them. Being able to recognize their years of service is a small token of our appreciation."
April Thraen, of Ogallala, is honored by Dr. Jody Tomanek, MPCC area vice-president of academic affairs and North Platte Community College, for five-plus years of service. Thraen is an adjunct instructor for MPCC.
Awards were presented at all of the college's campus locations, McCook, North Platte, Broken Bow, Imperial, Ogallala and Valentine, over the course of a month. The final ceremony was Thursday evening.
More than 150 adjunct instructors will teach for MPCC this fall. Of those, about 15 are employed by the college in an additional role.
