Vermont Women in Higher Education Honors AUNE Alumna Tiffany Keune with the Jackie M. Gribbons Leadership Award

Vermont Women in Higher Education (VWHE) honored Tiffany Keune with the Jackie M. Gribbons Leadership Award at VWHE’s annual Leadership Dinner, on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at the Kirk Alumni Center at Middlebury College. Keune earned her MS from Antioch University New England and serves as the Director of Workforce Education at the Community College of Vermont (CCV). Her work in corporate training and workforce development at CCV includes curriculum design, business outreach, workshop facilitation, course instruction, and instructor training. She also works with trainers, teachers, graduate, and undergraduate students to improve instructional practices and assessment strategies.

The Jackie M. Gribbons Leadership Award is presented to a woman who has demonstrated leadership abilities and effectiveness, served as a model and mentor for aspiring professionals, developed innovative programs or activities in higher education, and contributed significantly to her institution or profession.

“It is an incredible honor to receive the Jackie Gribbons Leadership Award,” said Keune. “Jackie made an impact on the lives of so many people, and was an advisor and guide for several of my own mentors. I hope that my work can reflect the qualities Jackie lived every day, including a sense of humor, a love for people and the environment, and a strong independent nature balanced by a desire to help others succeed. I am equally honored to have been nominated by my institution, as CCV has given me the ability to grow as a leader and mentor both through the freedom to explore new ideas, and by showing me what strong, supportive leadership looks like. I am humbled and deeply thankful for this award.”

“The CCV community is so proud that Tiffany has received this well-deserved honor for her strong leadership,” said CCV President Joyce Judy. “Tiffany’s tireless work to expand educational opportunities for Vermonters and to develop excellent workforce development programs is inspiring. She is a wonderful role model at CCV, in Rutland County, and throughout the higher education community in Vermont.”

A strong community member, Tiffany also serves on the Executive Board of Vermont Women in Higher Education, and has been a member of the Vermont Public Radio Community Forum Steering Committee and the Creative Economy Steering Committee. She speaks at various conferences and has designed and delivered workshops at the National Workforce Conference, Antioch New England Graduate School, Vermont Career and Technical Education Conference, Educating the Whole Student Conference, and various staff and faculty conferences statewide. Tiffany holds a BA from Castleton University, and an MS from Antioch New England Graduate School.
