PITTSBURGH—The Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) was among the recipients of the Fred Rogers Good Neighbor Award for workplace volunteerism. The award was presented to CCAC and 10 other companies and institutions Wednesday, March 20, at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.

The United Way of Allegheny County, which sponsors the awards, recognized CCAC for the work of employees and students with the Be a 6th Grade Mentor program and the Earned Income Tax Credit free tax preparation program.

“CCAC is honored once again to receive this meaningful award,” said Alex Johnson, CCAC president. “It is a testament to the generosity and selflessness of our employees and students. As a college of our community, these partnerships are simply a natural outgrowth of who we are.”

CCAC has been honored every year since the award’s inception in 2011.
