THIBODAUX, La. —  Nicholls Computer Information Systems Instructor Sherry Rodrigue is the 2018 recipient of the Outstanding Educator Award by the Association of Business Information Systems.

Rodrigue was honored at the Federation of Business Disciplines Annual Awards Banquet on Wednesday, March 7, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A member of the Association of Business Information systems since 2011, Rodrigue has served as secretary, program chair/vice president and is currently the president of the association.

“It is always rewarding to have your hard worked acknowledged by a group of your peers; knowing there are many others deserving of such a recognition,” Rodrigue said.

Rodrigue began working at Nicholls in 2000, providing computer support, but while working earned her Master of Business Administration degree and ultimately became a full-time instructor in the fall of 2010.

“Nicholls has been like a family to me,” Rodrigue said. “I love working with new faculty members to help ease their journey into teaching, as many co-workers did for me as I entered into teaching.”

Nicholls College of Business Administration Dean Dr. Marilyn Macik-Frey said Rodrigue has a keen ability to take a complicated subject such as business statistics and help students understand how to use the knowledge to make better business decisions.

“Our College owes a great deal to her for her dedication and commitment to the success of every Nicholls Business student,” Macik-Frey said. “We are thrilled that the Association of Business Information Systems selected Sherry for the Outstanding Educator Award for 2018.”
