Community Leaders Receive Distinguished Leadership Awards

Community College of Philadelphia’s three Regional Centers paid tribute to 18 community, civic and business luminaries who demonstrated outstanding commitment to the College and the community at large during the past year. The Distinguished Leadership Awards were presented at separate events at the three Regional Centers, April 29–May 1. “By serving our neighborhoods, we all become winners,” President Curtis said. “Volunteers lend fresh insights that can help communities develop new problem solving skills to meet the challenges of their particular neighborhoods.”
