Highest honor recently bestowed on the College
Blinn College received the Sealy Chamber of Commerce’s highest honor Thursday, earning the 2012 Pinnacle Award as the organization that best promoted and supported Sealy and its businesses.
“No part of the community benefits more from a well-educated workforce than we do,” said Chamber Director Peggy Spradley. “Whenever you’re looking to establish or expand your business, the availability of higher education is always high on the prospect list.”
Blinn has connected with its newest community since establishing the Sealy campus in 2005. This summer, College instructors volunteered at the YMCA summer program and taught students ages 6-12 about art, biology, physics and history. The new Student Government Association at Blinn planted trees at Cryan Memorial Park and raised money for Meals on Wheels this fall.
“I appreciate this award, and we are proud of our relationship with Sealy,” said Campus Director Jeri Dulaney, who also serves on Sealy’s Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club boards. “The community has been very supportive of the College.”
Dulaney has been director of Blinn’s Sealy campus since 2008.
