Fifteen NVC Employees Become Emerging Leaders

Congratulations to 15 Northwest Vista College employees who graduated from Alamo Colleges District’s Emerging Leaders Program (ELP) on Tuesday.

This is NVC’s first Emerging Leaders class, which is a five-and-a-half month leadership development program founded on Franklin Covey’s process-focused content: Great Leaders, Great Teams, Great Results. The NVC employees were selected by their supervisors or the NVC executive team in order to prepare them for leadership opportunities by giving them the skill sets and tools to assist them in transitioning into future leadership roles.

As a part of the program, the Emerging Leaders tackled NVC challenges and tried to find solutions that can be implemented. For instance, since the college has grown in faculty and staff, Emerging Leaders suggested that NVC bring back orientations for new employees but also incorporate current employees to break down the barriers.

Hope Galvan Mc-Call, the facilitator for the district program, said this is the first Emerging Leaders program at NVC and at St. Philip’s, Palo Alto College and the district office. Northeast Lakeview and San Antonio College will implement the program next year.

At the ceremony, Destiny Harper-Lane, Felix Salinas, Gary Bowling, Susan Palmer were given the Trusted Leaders Awards by the ELP participants for inspiring trust, showing integrity and are respected in their areas.
