The Dallas County Community College District is filled with amazing people demonstrating the highest levels of leadership, commitment, excellence in teaching, innovation and truly outstanding accomplishments in student success. The DCCCD has a long history of recognizing employee contributions and honoring employee achievements with its employee recognition award program. We believe it is always important to take the time, formally and informally, to acknowledge those contributions that truly capture the mission and goals of the Dallas County Community College District in serving our students and community.
