Wesley College was presented with a Tribute by the Kent County Levy Court on September 25 in celebration of the College being named Corporation of the Year by the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce

Wesley College won the Corporation of the Year Award during the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce’s Excellence in Business Awards Dinner on June 28, 2012. The event also recognized excellence in small business, outstanding partnership and the Leadership Central Delaware Class of 2012.

Three corporations were nominated and competed for votes from Chamber members. Award criteria included having more than 50 employees, using creative and imaginative strategies in dealing with the public or business community, showing growth in either number of employees or in sales dollars, and responding to adversity with creative solutions.

One prime example of collaborative planning includes the new Wesley Plazas, which were converted from sections of North Bradford, Fulton and Cecil streets into walkways, plazas and green space to create a more pedestrian-friendly campus. The project combined support from the City of Dover, the Wesley Student Government Association, the Delaware Legislature and others to improve upon the appearance and safety of campus. This project involved cooperation along the way from many other groups and organizations and was completed prior to the start of the Fall 2012 semester.

“This is a tremendous honor and we are truly grateful for the business and community support,” said Wesley President William N. Johnston of the Chamber award.  “Wesley College is committed to the greater Dover community and will continue our efforts to make a positive impact.”
