JCC Alumni and Criminal Justice Instructor is JCC's 2021 Faculty of the Year
Cynthia “Cindy” Sullivan was named JCC’s Faculty of the Year for the 2021 school year. Sullivan is entering her 18th year as a criminal justice instructor at the college, which is also her alma mater. Sullivan attended JCC before transferring to East Carolina University. There, she received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Sullivan practiced criminal justice for several years and then returned to teach at Johnston Community College.
Sullivan was nominated for the school’s highest faculty honor by colleagues who said,“[she] shows a passion for students’ success that I have not seen in many others. She truly wants to provide the best opportunities for students to learn and achieve their goals. She demonstrates this through her out-of-the-box thinking to engage all students’ learning types. While her expectations are written out on paper, she demonstrates what she expects from her students as she leads them.”
Sullivan serves on the following JCC committees: Faculty Association, Curriculum Committee, Academic Awareness Task Force, and the Quality Enhancement Plan Assessment Subcommittee. She also volunteered to work on the SPICE program to mentor new instructors.
Sullivan lives in Four Oaks with her husband Tony and their labradoodle Abby.
