The 25th recipient of the Rock Valley College Faculty of the Year award has been named.
Crystal Dinwiddie, RVC Assistant Professor of Sociology was honored with the award on March 28. Dinwiddie is a graduate of RVC and credits the college with making her the person she is today.
"I don't think I would have [been as successful] if it were not for the dedication and motivation of all the people at Rock Valley that believed in me and challenged me to improve. Rock Valley was an amazing turning point in my life. I became a public speaker, a consensus builder, a leader, a writer, a critical thinker...and a sociologist. I left Rock Valley with a set of skills and a social network that would prove invaluable to my future."
She went on to graduate from the University of Illinois Urbana/Champaign with a Bachelor's in Sociology and received her Masters in the Social Sciences from the University of Chicago.
Dinwiddie returned to RVC as an adjunct professor in spring 2007 and was a full-time faculty member by fall 2008.
