HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – (Oct. 5, 2005) – Two Virginia Community Colleges Association Showcase Awards for 2005 went to Tidewater Community College employees for their service and significant contributions to the college and VCCA.

Administrative assistant Monica Terry of the Portsmouth Campus, a TCC employee for 16 years, earned her associate degree from the college in 1989 and was quickly hired as a junior secretary in the Office of the President. She has worked for the provost of the Portsmouth Campus since 1991. Terry has served on numerous volunteer committees and is a member of the President’s Advisory and Planning Council, Black History Month Committee, Student Activities Planning Committee, Campus Social Activities Ad-Hoc Committee, and the college-wide Classified Association for TCC’s support staff, for which she serves as campus chair.
