ATC President Receives South Carolina’s Highest Civilian Award

Aiken County Legislative Delegation presents proclamations

(June 27, 2016, Aiken, SC) Aiken Technical College’s retiring President received South Carolina’s highest civilian award—the Order of the Palmetto—during a community reception held Monday at the College.

The honor was presented to Dr. Susan A. Winsor by members of the Aiken County Legislative Delegation on behalf of SC Gov. Nikki R. Haley. The Order of the Palmetto honors South Carolina citizens whose service and achievements have had an impact statewide or on a national level.

“This award is in recognition of your extraordinary work and dedication to the citizens of our state,” stated a letter from Gov. Haley read by state Sen. Tom Young, Jr. “Through your outstanding leadership as President of Aiken Technical College to your extensive involvement in business and civic affairs, you have demonstrated a remarkable commitment to excellence in all that you do. Your passion for education has not gone unnoticed and your contributions will have a lasting impact for years to come.”

In addition to the Order of the Palmetto, members of the Legislative Delegation also recognized Winsor with proclamations from both the state’s Senate and House of Representatives.

 “During her 17 years at Aiken Technical College, the work that she has done really cannot be quantified by words alone…She has done so much for the citizens of this community and this county,” said Sen. Young. “We can’t thank you enough for the dedication that you’ve shown to students, to the faculty and to the staff. She has served in various roles throughout the (SC) Technical College System to ensure that a quality technical college education remains affordable, accessible and relevant to the citizens of South Carolina.”

Winsor, who was visibly moved by the honors, described serving in education as a “calling” that she has enjoyed sharing with many over the years.

 “We are all here because we care so much about our students and we care so much about our community,” she said. “Those of you who are in the business and those who are my wonderful colleagues here at Aiken Technical College, you know that this is a calling. This is a mission that we take very seriously. So I want to thank all of my colleagues here that have helped me realize the vision that we hold together for this College. I’m really blessed to be spending my life in a career where you make such a difference in the lives of other people.”

Winsor has served as ATC’s President since September 1999 and has spent more than 30 years within the SC Technical College System.
