Ross named Director of Instruction at CVCC’s Alexander Center
Catawba Valley Community College is increasing its commitment to the Alexander County area it serves, announcing that Donna Ross has been named the Director of Instruction at the college’s Alexander Center for Education (ACE).
Ross previously served at CVCC as the Department Head of Humanities.
In this new role with the Alexander Center, Ross serves the instructors at ACE and provides needed support, answers procedural questions including those related to web attendance and Blackboard, provides staff development opportunities, and continually assesses resources needed to achieve student success.
She will also facilitate communication between the Alexander Early College High School administration and CVCC instructors assigned to deliver instruction.
“This communication should result in a more efficient program with a continued focus on student success as our primary goal,” Ross said.
Furthermore, Ross will be involved in planning, bringing events typically hosted on CVCC’s main campus to the Alexander County service area.
These types of events started in September when students were invited to attend a virtual presentation by Jason Vance entitled, “Kentucky Pack Horse Librarians and Their Scrapbooks.” This presentation was aligned with this year's Interdisciplinary Read — “The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek” by Kim Michele Richardson.
“This is an effort to make our Alexander Center offerings mirror those found on main campus,” Ross said. “I am excited to be a part of this new endeavor, and I look forward to working with the citizens of Alexander County to enhance educational offerings and opportunities.”
