Education Impact Award

March 11, 2010

The Chamber of Manitowoc County recently held their 93rd annual “Celebration of Success” dinner in which Dr. George F. Arnold was selected as the recipient of the 2009 Education Impact Award. This award is designed to recognize an exceptionally dedicated educator who “Impacts” parents, students or the community beyond the scope of the classroom while integrating business and community resources to enhance student learning opportunities. In addition, this individual should inspire participation from students, peers and other professionals to create awareness about the quality of life in Manitowoc County, demonstrate involvement with a community or school activity that makes a positive impact in Manitowoc County, and utilize Manitowoc County business and community resources to enhance student-learning opportunities.

Dr. Arnold was commended for his role in helping to further integrate Silver Lake College and its students with the Manitowoc County Community. Dr. Arnold stated, “I am deeply honored to have received this award from the Chamber of Manitowoc County. Continuing to strengthen the partnership between the College and the Manitowoc County Community, serves to only benefit us both. As prospective parents and students come from all over the country to visit Silver Lake, I am thrilled to be able to share with them the vibrant and thriving community in which we live.”

Dr. Arnold has been a life long educator. He received his undergraduate degree from Buffalo State University in New York and a Ph.D. from the University of Maryland at College Park. Prior to assuming the position of President at Silver Lake College, he served as Vice President of Academic Affairs and a member of the faculty at Monmouth College in Monmouth, Illinois.

  1. I worked at Monmouth College with Dr. Arnold for many years – he is one of the most kind, caring individuals that I know. He is truly a great educator and deserves this award. But I must say it’s a good thing for computers because his handwriting leaves something to be desired – and he will agree!!!!
