SBDC advisor recognized


Tom Shirreffs, Professional Business Advisor with the College’s Small Business Development Center, was recently honored as the Educator of the Month by the North Channel Chamber of Commerce due to his contributions to the North Channel area. For the fiscal year that ended Oct. 1, 2012, Shirreffs’ clients generated 92 jobs, and those jobs created an estimated $3.5 million in capital. The SBDC maintains an office at the North Campus, where Shirreffs offers guidance and counsel to small business clients. He is shown in the above photo, at left, receiving the recognition certificate from North Channel Chamber of Commerce President Dr. Charles Grant, who formerly served as the North Campus president.
