The award, which was presented at the 2002 Mid-Atlantic Region Annual Conference in Atlantic City, was given in the non-credit program development category. Jeff Covino and Pat Wood from the College's Continuing Education and Training Office accepted the award. Award criteria for this category includes the significance of the program to the needs of the community and the effectiveness of the program in meeting those needs, particularly those of adult or other continuing education constituencies, as well as effective and creative development of a program in the non-credit area. The Mid-Atlantic Region represents institutions and professionals in the following states: Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Washington D.C. and West Virginia.
