Aims associate dean receives honorary doctorate in community leadership

Submitted on: 10-27-2006

Aims Community College’s Associate Dean Roseann Guyette has received an honorary doctorate in community leadership from Franklin University. Guyette, who is just one of six across the country to receive the honor, will accept the degree during this year’s commencement ceremony. Guyette started at Aims 15 years ago as an adjunct faculty member before moving into the college’s Continuing Education Division as director of training and development. She then assumed the position of associate dean and served as interim dean over the past year. Most recently, she is splitting her time with the Continuing Education Division while serving as the associate dean on the Loveland campus. “In a letter from President Paul Otte of Franklin University, he cited her as a role model for community service and lifelong learning,” said Aims President Marsi Liddell. “Indeed those are traits that Roseann embodies. Congratulations to her for an award well deserved.” Guyette is credited with influencing thousands of students over the years. She was instrumental in developing the college’s partnership with Weld County Employment Services and expanding training programs to bridge language gaps in the workplace. "As I move into retirement, this is a great honor and a wonderful acknowledgement of my time with Aims,” said Guyette, who will leave the college in June 2007. “When I found out that I was selected, it rendered me speechless, and that doesn’t happen often.”
