PITTSBURGH-Dr. Gretchen Mullin-Sawicki, president of the Community College of Allegheny County's North Campus and West Hills Center, and John Boehm, dean of Administration at CCAC's North Campus and West Hills Center, have been selected as District 1 Difference Maker Award winners by Allegheny County Council District 1 officials. The awardees were honored along with eight other winners at the 4th Annual District 1 Town Hall meeting on July 30.

Mullin-Sawicki and Boehm were nominated by Dr. David Barkovich, dean of Students at North Hills High School, for their efforts in expanding CCAC's free shuttle service for CCAC students living along the Perry Highway corridor to West View. CCAC's North Campus is located in an area not directly served by the Port Authority. The shuttle service began in January to provide a connection to Port Authority resources. Due to demand in the area, the additional route to West View is being implemented at the beginning of the fall 2018 semester.

"Thank you for your incredible efforts to help others and make a positive impact in our community and across Allegheny County," said Allegheny County Councilman Tom Baker in a congratulatory letter. The awards were presented by Baker and Allegheny County Councilman Sam DeMarco. CCAC President Dr. Quintin Bullock attended the Town Hall meeting to show his support for Mullin-Sawicki and Boehm.

"I am honored and humbled to receive a District 1 Difference Maker award as it is my pleasure and privilege to work with such an amazing community of leaders," said Mullin-Sawicki.

District 1 comprises Aleppo, Ben Avon, Ben Avon Heights, Coraopolis, Emsworth, Findlay, Glen Osborne, Glenfield, Haysville, Kilbuck, Moon, North Fayette, Ross Township and West View.
