Article by: CCAC Public Relations
PITTSBURGH—In celebration of 50 years of providing quality, affordable and accessible education that prepares the region’s residents for academic, professional and personal success, the Community College of Allegheny County will honor 50 Distinguished Alumni at its 50th Anniversary Gala on November 19, 2016.

Alumni, faculty, staff, current and former students and friends of CCAC are encouraged to submit nominations on behalf of those who have made a lasting impact in their fields, their communities or on behalf of the college through their outstanding professional, voluntary or philanthropic accomplishments.

To be eligible, a nominee must have either received a degree, certificate or diploma from CCAC; or the nominee must be a former student who completed any number of credits at CCAC and transferred to continue his or her studies at another institution. Posthumous awards will be considered.

The CCAC 50th Anniversary Distinguished Alumni Committee will select the awardees. Once the final selections are made, only those chosen for awards will be notified. Qualified nominees who do not receive the award will be kept on file for a period of two years for consideration for future recognition. Selected nominees are expected to attend the gala celebration, except in the event of a posthumous award, in which case an associate or family member will accept the award on behalf of the honoree.

Nomination forms can be found at this link. Nominations, along with any supporting documentation, must be submitted by December 31, 2015, and may be sent via email to or via regular mail to the following address:

Rose Ann DiCola
