Brevard College Honors Student Leaders, Staff


Last updated 5/6/2020 at 3:14pm

For the first time in Brevard College history, everything from classes to award ceremonies have moved online. Last week, Brevard College Campus Life held its annual Leadership Awards Ceremony online to honor students, faculty and staff achievements in leadership.

Debbie D’Anna, Vice President for Student Success and Dean for Students, welcomed those in attendance, and Dee Dasburg, Associate Dean for Students, was the guest speaker.

“We know this is a little bit different then the past, but we are very excited that we are able to provide this type of event for you for all the hard work you have given to us in the past year,” said D’Anna.

The college’s main focus is on experiential learning and Brevard College has added a touch of fun creativity to the new “everyday normal.” Students, faculty and staff were asked to submit a short video of themselves accepting their awards and to be creative with what they used as their trophy. From a vacuum cleaner to a cereal box falling from the sky, Brevard College students took to the challenge and did not disappoint. The virtual award ceremony can be viewed on the Life at BC Facebook page.
