PITTSBURGH—During yesterday’s regular meeting of the Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) Board of Trustees, the board recognized alumnus Robert M. Mill as a trustee emeritus.

Trustee Emeritus Mill was awarded the title for his many contributions to the college including his work on both the CCAC Board of Trustees, where he served as member from 1972 until 1997 and as chair from 1981 to 1987, and the CCAC Educational Foundation Board of Directors on which, as a founding member in 1979, he served until 2001 before being awarded emeritus standing in 2003.

Affectionately referred to as “Mr. CCAC,” Mill has been paying it forward ever since 1966, when as a member of the college’s first class, he served as student government president. In the more than four decades since, Mill helped found the CCAC Alumni Association; served as both steering committee member and donor for the CCAC Labor-Management Institute including the Robert M. Mill Lecture Series & Endowed Professorship; and is a member of the steering committee for Imagine & Achieve: The Campaign for the Community College of Allegheny County, the largest and most successful fundraising campaign in the college’s history.

In 1998, in recognition of his steadfast support for and advocacy on behalf of CCAC, Mill received an honorary Associate of Arts in Humane Letters degree. One year later, Mill was presented the Legends in Leadership Lifetime Legend Award and in 2001, was inducted into the CCAC Hall of Fame.
