We recognize that all classified staff make a positive difference and significantly contribute to the success of our students at each community college and district. The California Community Colleges Classified Senate wants to extend the local recognition that many of our colleagues have received within their local colleges and districts for excellence in service, leadership and participation during this last year. To that end, we collect information from our Classified Senate members and assemble a “Outstanding Classified Leadership Awards” slideshow.

As part of our annual Classified Leadership Institute (CLI) held each year in June, we recognize and honor outstanding classified employees of the year from across the state. We would like to include your classified honorees for the year in this slideshow (graphic) presentation. We will also accept classified of the month and group awards. Please send us information on your award winners in order that your college’s classified staff recognition(s) can be extended statewide and shared for others to see. We will include your awards in this year’s recognition ceremony in June and afterwards on the 4CS Web site for all to celebrate.

Submission Information and Guidelines

For your college or district’s award winner(s), please email a brief biographical statement including all of the following information:

  • The name of employee – please double-check spelling,
  • The name of college or district at which they work,
  • Their positive, personal characteristics (at least two), relative to their receiving an award,
  • Any specific achievements that may have contributed to receiving the award,
  • The official name of the “local” award received (examples: Classified Employee of the Year or Outstanding Staff of Butte College Award, etc.),
  • A photograph of the person or group

Photograph Submission Guidelines:

Please send us the best photograph of the individual or group you can get. If you have a photographic print, please scan it at 150 pixels/inch (or better) and save it as a maximum quality jpeg format (better: a tiff or Photoshop format). If you already have a digital image of at least 72 pixels/inch or better, send us the best quality image you have. We may make small improvements and changes to the image as feasible and needed to fit the format of the presentation.

An email will go out in the Spring of each year prior to the Classified Leadership Institute. If you have additional questions, please email us at
