HCC recognizes adjunct faculty members

January 26, 2009

Hagerstown Community College recognized four of its adjunct faculty members in early January with the Academic Excellence in Higher Education Awards.

Four academic divisions nominated one adjunct faculty member in each division to receive an award.

Nominees included Audra Haddock Martenot, a digital photography instructor, nominated by Margaret Spivey, director, technology and computer studies; Richard C. Snyder Jr., a sociology and human services instructor, nominated by Frances Cade, chair, behavioral and social sciences/business division; Annyce K. Stone, a developmental English and English composition instructor, nominated by Dawn Schoenenberger, director, developmental education and adult literacy services; and Janice M. Sturniolo, a developmental mathematics and college algebra instructor, nominated by Judith Peisen, chair, mathematics and science division.

In October, HCC recognized adjunct faculty member Ed Gift as adjunct faculty member of the year. Gift, a full-time teacher at Smithsburg High School, has been an adjunct faculty member at HCC for the last 36 years. He is the longest- teaching adjunct faculty member in the college's history.

An adjunct faculty member is one who does not teach at the college full time. Often, adjunct faculty members have another full-time, 40-hour-per-week job and go to HCC to teach one or two classes a semester (for some, only one or two classes a year). Many of them are teachers in HCC's continuing education program. HCC employs more than 300 adjunct faculty members.
