HCC’s Myers wins recognition

Haywood Community College’s Sherri Myers was recently honored by the North Carolina Council of Officers for Resource Development with its Harriette McKinnon Crump Award.  

The award is given annually to recognize the potential of members who are pursuing education in community college resource development.

Myers received the award at the group’s annual conference in Southern Pines. With the award, comes a $750 scholarship to attend the Council of Resource Development Specialist Training Program, a two-week training is an intensive introduction to all facets of resource development in the community college. Many of the nation’s most successful community college development and alumni professionals have participated in this program.

Myers works with the HCC Foundation as its director of Institutional Advancement.   

“I know each day that what I do impacts our students, their future, our community and our world,” said Myers in accepting the award. “It is also really special to be back where I started my education and to help others as I was helped.”
