Chaffey Receives Outstanding Achievement Award

To President/Superintendent Shannon, Chaffey College:

The English Council of California Two-Year Colleges ( is a professional non-profit organization representing all two-year college English departments and faculty members throughout the state. ECCTYC sends representation to National TYCA, hosts a biennial conference, and, as you know well, publishes inside english, an annual professional journal that reaches every campus of our college system. These are large tasks for a small non-profit, which is why ECCTYC relies on the generous patronage of constituent colleges like Chaffey.

The ECCTYC board recognizes Chaffey College as one of this organization’s strongest supporters: through years of continued representation on the board (notably Michael Dinielli and Sean Stratton), through years of travel support for your faculty and administrators who attend our statewide meetings, and through the hosting of the inside english publication, Chaffey has shown a strong and continued commitment to the advancement of English studies in California.

For strong and steadfast support, the board is pleased to present Chaffey College with an Outstanding Achievement Award for its support and contributions to ECCTYC and California’s Community Colleges. This award was presented to Chaffey care of Michael Dinielli on April 15 at the ECCTYC Spring 2010 board meeting.
