Marquetta Massey, MBA, RHIA has been awarded the AHIMA Educator Triumph Award!
Marquetta has had the honor of working at Central Piedmont Community College since 2012 and has been the program chair since 2015. The program at CPCC is ninety percent online, which has provided many opportunities to incorporate the widespread use of technology in course delivery. In 2018, she received an award at CPCC for “Best Instructional Video”. This award was given based on the use of creative tools and methods in online courses. During Marquetta’s tenure at CPCC, she has had the opportunity to work with and mentor students who are at varying stages in their life and careers. As an instructor, she strives to balance expectations with accountability. She understands the importance of helping students know that the completion of their degree is a partnership between them and the instructor. As a mentor, she encourages students to join AHIMA and NCHIMA to become active volunteers. Her students are prepared to join the workforce by the point of graduation, and they are not only knowledge content experts but Marquetta dedicates herself to ensuring the students have business etiquette training so that they are more than prepared for a professional workplace. She is a dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer for NCHIMA and has served in many roles over the years. Her current role in the next term is to be Region Liaison for NCHIMA, she has served in this role before to assist the NCHIMA Executive Board with communicating with the regions and offering assistance in scheduling top notch educational sessions for NCHIMA members. Marquetta is a shining example of a leader in the HIM industry and we are so pleased that she has been awarded the AHIMA Educator Triumph Award for demonstrating excellence in preparing the next generation of professionals for their HIM careers.
This national honor is given to a very select few professionals in the Health Information Management field. This is like the Academy Awards of our profession and it is an extremely discriminating process that only the best and brightest in our field can achieve! Please join me in congratulating Marquetta!
