2015 Outstanding Staff Member
Barbara Bass Romich, Dean of Arts and Sciences, is the 2015 Outstanding Staff Member Award Recipient.
"It was such an honor and surprise," said Romich about receiving this honor. "I began my teaching career in 1979 with the community college system and of all the places I have worked, Cleveland Community College has been my favorite. To be recognized and appreciated by my peers for a job I love makes working at CCC even more special."
Romich has been part of the Psychology Department faculty at CCC since 2001 and has served as the Dean of Arts and Sciences since 2008. She received her master's degree from Western Kentucky University and her bachelor's degree from East Carolina University.
When not at the College, Romich serves as a board member of CLECO, is a member of Shelby Presbyterian and has been a Girl Scout leader for 24 years.
Romich and her husband Gary live in Cherryville. They have three children, Randy, Stephanie and Noah.
