During the recent 2016 MS Association of Adult and Community Education (MAACE) Annual Conference, Mrs. Angie Bass, Assistant Career Pathway Coordinator from Northeast Mississippi Community College (NEMCC) was received the 2016 MAACE Support Staff of the Year Award. Each year, MAACE members nominate individuals within the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program in Mississippi who have demonstrated exceptional performance within the department. This year, in the historic Vicksburg, MS, 412 members nominated over 1000 individuals to be considered for various awards. The MAACE Support Staff of the Year Award recognizes ABE staff who are not ABE instructors but significantly contribute to the ABE program and demonstrate excellence in service to the program.
NEMCC Director of ABE and Distance Learning, Pam Meeks proudly nominated Mrs. Bass for the 2016 MAACE Support Staff of the Year Award. Mrs. Bass had already been awarded the NEMCC 2016 ABE Support Staff of the Year Award during the 2016 ABE graduation/award ceremony held on May 16, 2016 in Seth Pounds Auditorium. Mrs. Meeks stated that this was a well-deserved award for an individual who had well-served the NEMCC ABE department for 17 years. Congratulations to Mrs. Bass for her accomplishments!
