Why Nassau Community College has a ‘unique’ motto
- by admin
Posted February 08, 2018 08:07:04 Nassau community colleges have a unique motto, one that is not found in many other communities, according to a new report.
The Nassau County Board of Education has identified the Nassau College of Nursing as a member of the “Community College of Excellence,” a name that is unique to the community college.
In the past, Nassau has also been a member or board member of several other community colleges, including the community colleges of New Castle and Chatham.
The new board report, titled “Nassau Community Colleges, Part I: Community College of Achievement,” was released Wednesday by the board, which is chaired by Republican Rep. Mark DeSaulnier.
“It is the first time that the Nassar community college has been named an “All-Star,” a designation that honors outstanding accomplishments and excellence in the field of community college,” the report said.
“The board is excited to recognize the community of Nassau for its contributions to our community and its extraordinary community college system.”
The Nassar Community College Board has been a supporter of the Nassaele Community College system in the past.
Nassau’s Community College System Board of Trustees has been known to approve a “new” name for the school.
“Nasau Community college has a long and storied history in Nassau and has been an integral part of the community for over 200 years,” said Board President and CEO Michael Haddad.
“We are pleased that this new name will honor the many achievements and accomplishments of this school, and the many outstanding faculty and staff that work to make Nassau a world-class community college.”
The board’s new board chairman, Mark De Saulniers, was a community college teacher in the 1970s.
He also served as the director of the local public schools department for more than two decades.
De Sulons involvement in Nassaelee has come under scrutiny in recent months.
In June, the Nassambeau County government announced the closure of the school because of budget cuts.
It also said it would not accept additional student applications for 2018.
“These cuts will have an impact on the Nassesau community as it struggles to provide for its students and staff,” the county said in a statement at the time.
DeSulons family is also known for his support of local communities and its public schools system.
In 2001, De Sauns family donated $10,000 to support the Nassmbeau Valley School District.
“I will continue to work tirelessly for the children and communities of Nassammeau, and for our students,” De Sauons family wrote on the foundation’s website.
