"The recipients were unanimously chosen by the Community College

Alumni Board for their conscientious efforts and support of the alumni

association," said Glady Kabateck, director of the association.

During her tenure, the association has doubled the number of disabled

residents it serves, developed three group homes and a senior home, and
