Melissa Stave, an adaptive physical education instructor at Hartnell College, recently received an award from the Community College Association (CCA), a statewide advocacy organization for California two-year college faculty.
The WHO (We Honor Ours) award - presented at a banquet in Newport Beach - recognized "her outstanding work for Hartnell's Faculty Association (FA)," a collective bargaining organization for Hartnell's teaching staff.
Formerly president of the FA, Stave has held several positions within the organization. Current FA President David Beymer, PE instructor and athletic trainer, calls Stave "the backbone of the organization."
The CCA is an affiliate of the California Teachers Association. For more information, call Stave at (831) 755-6876.
