At the NCCC Atlantic Region campus, each team nominates one member from their team to receive the P.A.C.E. (Positive Attitude Consistent Effort) award and one member from each unit is selected for the Corps Member of the Round recognition.
Below are the three Corps Members selected out of 140 members for the Corps Member of the Round recognition for round 1 projects.
This Corps Member was a pillar of the team this round. Patrick was always the first person to pick up the tools and start working in the morning, and brought 100% to any given task. The team describes this person as the hardest working member on the team, and this member surely deserves that title. Fellow team members are grateful for the hard work, but also for the support and companionship Patrick brought to each one of them. When the team hit a low point, he remained calm and collected and went out of their way to offer help to those in need. When fellow members were facing a personal crisis, Patrick was there to offer kind words and to be a listening ear. Something about Patrick that everyone appreciates is the unexpected jokes that he throws out. The team cannot help but laugh, no matter how bland the joke is.
As the Team Leader, I feel very fortunate to have Patrick on the team. He exemplifies hard work and positive attitude. I have especially enjoyed his gift in reading maps. I suppose he helped keep our team on the right path in many ways. On top of all of the above qualities, he is extremely modest about what they contribute to the team. Therefore, the team and I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Patrick for being a wonderful teammate and Corps Member. ~ Tomoyo, Team Leader, Buffalo 2

The Moose Unit awards Jessica from Indiana as the “Corps Member of the Round” for her exemplary leadership on and off the worksite.
Jessica is a model worker, and an exemplary leader on and off the worksite. She is patient, diligence and flexible. There is no task that I have given her that she has not been able to tackle, on time and with good results. I think one of her most important traits is her ability to see things from all perspectives and really help the team work together to get the goal accomplished. Moreover, I have observed her taking initiative more than anyone else on the team, a trait that has not gone unnoticed. But it is not just in comparison that she been industrious, she legitimately enjoys helping others and helping the team work together. Her constant effort and work that she puts into the team has been beyond helpful, it has been a saving grace. In summation, I want to reiterate my confidence in Jessica’s ability to lead and foster a healthy team dynamic. She is a self-starter (and I mean that in no uncertain terms), and that has showcased her as the assistant team leader for my team and really been a role model to others. ~ Tobiah, Team Leader, Moose 5

The Raven Unit awards Quin from California as the “Corps Member of the Round” for her positive attitude, pushing herself and others, and strong ethics.
Quin has exemplified and been an example to her team by being positive, by pushing the team to reach its goal, by taking moral stances about her work, as well as being undoubtedly active and ethical in her specialty role even during CTI. A care is taken into her job that can be seen by event sponsors. Her team speaks about her character in a way that these words cannot paint; even with colors such as ‘Avocado,’ ‘Rice Patty’, or even ‘White Duck.’ I would like to nominate Quin for Corps Member of the Round. ~ Daniel, Team Leader, Raven 5
