Women in Non-Traditional Careers Awards
The CNM Chapter of the American Association for Women in Community Colleges presents the Women in Non-Traditional Career Awards (WIN). The WIN program is designed to celebrate, acknowledge and validate the successes of our students and instructors and administration working and studying in non-traditional program areas.
