Dr. Dennis Headrick, vice president for instruction at Southeast Community College, and Robert Feit, a member of SCC’s Board of Governors, received awards from the Nebraska Community College Association during its annual meeting in Lincoln.

Headrick was presented the 2019 NCCA Administrator’s Award, while Feit was presented the 2019 NCCA Governor’s Award. The ceremony and dinner were held Nov. 3 in Lincoln.

Headrick has served SCC for the past 29 years, including Beatrice Campus director. He has served on many state and national boards in various leadership roles and has been instrumental in many transformative changes at SCC, including his role in converting the College from quarters to semesters.

“Dr. Headrick is an outstanding community college administrator who has served SCC with integrity and dedication to the needs of diverse students and communities we serve,” said President Dr. Paul Illich.

Feit, currently vice chairperson for the SCC Board, has served on the BOG for 20 years as chair, vice chair, secretary, and treasurer. He works closely with his constituents and has attended countless SCC events, including student and faculty/staff awards, ribbon cuttings, open houses, and in-service events.

“Mr. Feit deeply believes in the mission and role of the community college and has dedicated much of his time, energy and passion to promoting and supporting SCC,” Illich said. “He is extremely attentive and purposeful in his questions and insights. He encourages and supports his fellow Board members and is always willing to explore all sides of an issue.”

Next year’s NCCA Conference will be held at Western Nebraska Community College in Scottsbluff.
