Retirement Celebration to Honor WNCC's Bonnie York

Business & Technology Professor Bonnie York will retire this year after 32 years of teaching at Western Nevada Community College in Fallon.

Friends, colleagues, and students are invited to this free event.

During her illustrious career, York has been awarded the Presidential Excellence in Teaching Award and the Regents Teaching Award. She was also the first recipient of the Outstanding Faculty Member Award.

York has dedicated her life to shaping the college's computer program. She has taught a broad range of courses in accounting, bookkeeping, computer applications, office management, and was responsible for establishing the first computer networks and labs in Fallon.
