Faculty, staff and students from Louisiana's twelve community and technical colleges gather annually to share best practices and participate in professional development. The annual meeting is also a time to celebrate many successes throughout the state. Nunez was in the spotlight multiple times during the three days.

Those receiving awards included David Ballero - Outstanding Support Staff, Brittney Barras - Outstanding Professional Staff, Dr. Elsa Winsor - Distinguished Retiree, Dr. Tinney, Katherine Lemoine - Outstanding Faculty.
