DCC President Carlyle Ramsey (center holding award) was honored with the Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Awards.  He was nominated by members and advisors of DCC's Upsilon Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.

DANVILLE, VA, April 26, 2013 - Dr. Carlyle Ramsey, President of Danville Community College, was one of eight retiring college presidents and campus Chief Executive Officers (CEO) honored with the Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Award during Phi Theta Kappa’s annual convention, held recently in San Jose, CA.

The Michael Bennett Lifetime Achievement Awards are presented to college presidents and campus CEOs at two-year or senior institutions, and state community college directors who have been supportive of Phi Theta Kappa, and are retiring from their careers. The award is named in honor of the late Dr. Michael Bennett, longtime president of St. Petersburg College in Florida.
