Assistant Professor of Basic Sciences Terry Lancaster, M.A., was named Faculty Member of the Year. “Although she has been with us only a short time, Terry Lancaster has made a deep impression on our students,” says Vice President for Academic Affairs Joe Donofrio, D.C., A.C.P. “She has helped develop the new anatomy courses and is always accessible and eager to do whatever it takes to help students learn.”

When she is not teaching, Lancaster is an active booster of the Greenville Swamp Rabbits hockey team and enjoys day trips on her Ural with her dog in the sidecar.

Applications Manager Nick Watson was named Staff Member of the Year. “Nick always sees a solution to any opportunity that arises – in fact, he often identifies multiple solutions,” says Vice President for Business and Finance Karen Canup, C.P.A., of his contributions to the college. “Over the course of the 15 months Nick has been on staff, he has helped everyone on campus either directly or indirectly. He comes to work each day with a positive attitude and is always willing to help in any way that he can.”

Watson joined the college as a help desk technician in September 2016 and was recently promoted to applications manager. In this role, he manages and stabilizes student information systems, and he is currently working with a committee to evaluate a potential new information system, for which he will serve as onsite manager.
