Congratulations 2015 PIVOT 180 Graduates

On Tuesday, November 10, 2015, members of the sixth cohort of PIVOT 180, one of Valencia’s leadership development programs, received their certificates of completion at a celebration at the District Office.

Program facilitators Shara Lee, Osceola and Lake Nona campus director, faculty and instructional development, and Erin Tuttle, coordinator, supervisor and leadership development, hosted the ceremony as 22 Valencia leaders were recognized for completing this year-long development program.

The PIVOT 180 program, founded by the American Association of Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC) in 2009, now the Association of Valencia Women (AVW), is designed to develop strong leadership and self-management skills that focus on transferable leadership skills, rather than specific job responsibilities.
