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
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.
