LBCC was recognized for its work to develop partnerships with industry and the business community, including the Pipeline program, which aims to connect students with local jobs, and for efforts by staff members to support a variety of community causes and organizations.
"It was an honor to be considered for this award alongside a great organization like Selmet, and an even greater honor to then receive it,” said LBCC President Dr. Greg Hamann. “LBCC is committed to building better communities, a vision that began with great people like founding board member Russ Tripp and continues with our passionate employees, board members and with me personally. I am grateful to be a part of such a great calling, and blessed to be among so many dedicated people at LBCC and in the Albany community. This award is for all of us."
After three nominations, this is the first time the college has won the award. Selmet Inc, an Albany aerospace manufacturing company, was named finalist.
