Presidential Awards

Community College of Philadelphia has established four annual Presidential Awards for Distinguished Service to honor one employee from each of the major employment categories (administrator, classified/confidential, and faculty). Each honoree has proved to be a positive role model and has shown outstanding service to the College and the community, thereby advancing the College and the principles of its mission.

Recipients receive a $1,000 (pre-tax) stipend, a certificate, and his or her name placed on a Presidential Award Plaque.
