Hudson Valley Community College has announced its recipients of the 2018 President’s Award for Excellence. The awards, which have been handed out by Hudson Valley Community College presidents since 1985, were presented at the college’s 34th annual Faculty Staff Honors Convocation on May 3.

Suzanne L. Glaude, web site specialist in the Information Technology Services department, and Jennifer M. Moss, principal account clerk in the cashier’s office, received the President’s Award for Excellence in College Service.

Daniel J. Capuano, an assistant professor in the Biology, Chemistry and Physics Department received the President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching.
 
Suzanne L. Glaude, of Averill Park, has been with the college since 1994. She was instrumental in the launch of the college’s first online learning platform, Topclass, in 1997.
