Congratulations to Dr. Barbara Burton on Outstanding Achievement Award
Congratulations to International Education Director Dr. Barbara Burton! She received the Dr. Werner O. Kubsch Award from the Community Colleges for International Development (CCID) February 25 at their conference in Atlanta, Ga. The Kubsch Award is an annual distinction presented to a community college educator for outstanding achievement in international education and the improvement of international relations.
Dr. Burton has facilitated opportunities for students and faculty to study abroad in six continents and has raised money for international student scholarships and Guatemalan schools and families. Under her direction, the Green Guatemala Project continues to provide economic opportunity and improved quality of life for peasant Guatemalan farmers by teaching them to use green technology to dry coffee beans for profit.
