PARKERSBURG, WV -

The Association of Community College Trustees has honored Patsy Bee, formerly of West Virginia University at Parkersburg, with the 2013 Southern Region ACCT Professional Board Staff award. 

Bee will compete for national-level recognition next month at the 44th annual ACCT Leadership Congress. WVU Parkersburg Board Chairman Gerard El Chaar nominated Bee for the award in July.

Bee recently retired from her position as WVU Parkersburg's executive assistant to the president. Her 33 years of service spanned four administrations and multiple changes in college identity.

During her tenure, the college transitioned from Parkersburg Community College to a regional campus of West Virginia University and then to a stand-alone college in the state's new community and technical college system. 

Throughout, she served as the right-hand person for the board and ensured that new members learned the institution and had what was needed to perform their duties.

ACCT's Regional Awards recognize the contributions made by trustees, equity programs, chief executive officers, faculty members and professional board staff of the nation's community colleges.

Awardees from each of the five regions will contend for national-level recognition, with one winner in each category to be announced Oct. 4.
