‘Instructor of the Year’ From Roswell, N.M. Job Corps
Michael Kissell, an electrical instructor at the Roswell Job Corps Center in Roswell, N.M., was named Instructor of the Year at the Home Builders Institute's (HBI) annual Instructor Conference in Memphis, Tenn.
HBI’s top instructor is selected from among the six winners of the Manager’s Choice Award, whose efforts in the classroom, leadership and integrity have made a discernible difference for their Job Corps students.
In his 10 years at HBI, Kissell has repeatedly ranked among the organization’s best educators, receiving HBI’s distinguished Extra Mile Award in 2002, the Placement Excellence Award in 2003 and 2006, and Manager’s Choice Award in 2005 and now 2007.
Over the course of the 2006-2007 school year, Kissell brought innovation and enthusiasm to the classroom, while preparing his students for success in the next phase of their lives.
HBI has named an Instructor of the Year for the past seven years, but Kissell is the first to also receive a $5,000 cash award.
“Receiving this award was a great honor,” said Kissell. “I am extremely proud to be considered in the same category as some of the other terrific HBI instructors who’ve won Instructor of the Year.”
