HST Honors Minister for Longtime Support
WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College Human Service Technology (HST) faculty recently honored Minister Bob Clyde for his long-term contributions to students in their program.
During orientation for new HST students Aug. 24, Dr. Ray Taylor, HST Department Chair, presented Clyde with a plaque in recognition of his nearly 40 years of leading PCC students through training experiences at Camp Don Lee. Taylor said Clyde, a retired minister with the Baptist Student Union at East Carolina University, has also assisted with the college’s HST orientation for 30 years.
According to Taylor, HST students participate in activities at Camp Don Lee each year that are designed to increase self-awareness and foster team-building skills through collaboration and cooperation. The training, he said, also strengthens faculty-student relationships.
Taylor noted that Clyde’s work with PCC students at Camp Don Lee will continue in the years ahead.
“Bob’s ability to inspire students, passion for people and creative imagination are unique gifts that cause students to say they want to go back to Camp Don Lee,” he said. “He is one of the finest, most genuine and authentic people I know.”
Located in Arapahoe, Camp Don Lee is owned and operated by the United Methodist Church. The camp offers retreat opportunities throughout the year to churches, schools and civic organizations.
