Each year, El Camino College honors a full-time faculty, part-time faculty, and classified staff employee for demonstrating the highest level of commitment to their students, the College, and their profession.
The El Camino College Distinguished Staff Award is presented annually to a staff member whose contributions demonstrate commitment to outstanding service to the District.
Nominations may be submitted by any member of the college community, students past and present, or persons in the community-at-large. Staff members may also nominate themselves.
