By J.D. Rottweiler, Ph.D. As my second term serving on the Arizona State Board of Education comes to a close, I see an unprecedented opportunity for K-12 schools and community colleges to collaborate to increase student success. The state board recently concluded the public comment period for the revision of academic standards. The topic of […]
Emails about the historical image that appeared on the back of the last “Accolade” began arriving shortly after the issue published in June. Among the first came from John Strand, who didn’t receive the magazine but whose friend Cleve Voiers (‘68) had shared the document. Strand, it turns out, was the Burt Reynolds look-alike who […]
A Former Cochise Rodeo Facebook page established in May quickly landed 800 followers, who got right to work identifying and sharing photos and connecting friends. That level of interest told its organizer, college retiree and new Cochise College Foundation board member Dr. Mark von Destinon, that the appetite for rodeo is alive and well, if […]

The specific programs that are in place are the National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Award and the Achieved Classified Excellence (ACE) Award. The first is connected with the College of Education at the University of Texas at […]
There’s nothing that brightens our day more than hearing from Cochise College alumni. Who, you ask, is an alum? An alum is any former student, whether they received a credential or not. Former faculty and staff also fall into this category. Alumni-focused communications, including the biannual Accolade magazine, are mailed to those for whom the […]
By J.D. Rottweiler, Ph.D. The great physicist Sir Isaac Newton has a law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. As a sociologist, I have a human version of that theory: For every good deed, the impact on others is immeasurable. In other words, human actions have ripple effects. We celebrated some […]
