Recognizing significant milestones and celebrating accomplishments are important aspects of the educational experience at Northeast State Community College. The College administers and awards various Bethinstitutional honors to students, faculty, staff, and alumni that reflect their commitment to excellence in academics and service.

Honors Convocation is held annually in April and is considered one of the two most important events sponsored by the College. The other is the yearly Commencement Ceremony for graduating students. Awards for outstanding students in each academic program area and the overall Northeast State Outstanding Student Award are announced during Honors Convocation. In addition, students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have made significant contributions in various programs and student organizations are honored. Selection of the recipients varies by award and/or program.

The Institutional Student Nominating Committee (ISNC) is an ad hoc committee of administrators, faculty, and staff who serve to nominate Northeast State students for state, regional, and national awards that require institutionally approved nominees. The committee reviews award criteria and implements selection procedures to screen potential nominees. The ISNC currently oversees the Northeast State nomination processes for the following awards or programs: the All-Tennessee Community College Academic Team, Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges, the Jack Kent Cooke Undergraduate Transfer Scholarship, the Tennessee Board of Regents Student Regent, the Tennessee Higher Education Commission Student Member, and the State's Love Community Involvement Awards. The ISNC also selects the student nominees for transfer scholarships when offered by state four-year colleges and universities as institutional awards.

The Office of the Dean of Student Development coordinates the Institutional Honors award processes. More information can be obtained by contacting the Dean’s Office at 423.354.5120 or
