Clark College communication studies professor David Kosloski was awarded the 2009 Community College Outstanding Educator Award by the National Communication Association (NCA).
The award, which was presented on Nov. 14 during the association’s annual convention, is given to an NCA member who has made outstanding contributions to education at a community college and who exemplifies excellence in teaching, scholarship and service to the speech communication profession. The recipient must also have a minimum of five years experience of teaching, scholarship, and service within the communication discipline.
“I was both thrilled and honored when I was told I had received this award,” said Kosloski, who joined Clark College in 1998. “Though teaching has its own rewards, it is icing on the cake when your colleagues recognize your efforts as well.”
Kosloski’s previous honors include the Judge Educator Award, which he received in 2006 during the Northwest Forensics Conference in recognition for his outstanding performance as a coach and judge at speech and debate tournaments. He also received the Clark College Exceptional Faculty Award for the 2006-2007 academic year.
Founded in 1914, the National Communication Association (NCA) is the oldest and largest national organization promoting effective and ethical communication. NCA is a non-profit organization of more than 8,800 members who work and reside in every state and more than 20 foreign countries.
