Excellence Award - Individual

The Excellence Awards recognize individual and team excellence at CNM.

CNM serves a vital role in its community with the energy, vision and attitude of an invaluable resource — its employees. The College is pleased to recognize each year outstanding contributions to the institution's mission and processes.

Each year CNM solicits nominations for Individual Excellence and Team Excellence Awards.
