The gala will take place from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Vie, located on 600 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, Pa.

Philadelphia Mayor James F. Kenney and CCP President and CEO, Dr. Donald Guy Generals will make remarks prior to the award presentations for this year’s gala honorees, which include:

-       Philadelphia Eagle Malcolm Jenkins, safety and team captain, co-founder of the Malcolm Jenkins Foundation and the Players Coalition, will receive the Community Hero Award for his service to the community to advance issues such as education and economic advancement in low income communities, criminal justice reform, police community relations, and for his service to Community College of Philadelphia as a member of the College’s Foundation Board.

-       Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) President and CEO Julie Coker Graham will receive the Corporate Leadership Award for her work promoting Philadelphia through the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, her service on multiple Philadelphia community boards, and the Bureau’s partnership with Community College of Philadelphia by inviting CCP students to participate in PHL Diversity’s Hospitality and Education Day.   

-       Raytheon Company former Chief Diversity Officer Hayward Bell will receive the Alumni Achievement Award for being an industry leader and innovator in the practice of diversity and inclusion at the corporate level.

To continue the celebration of community involvement and growth, 50th Anniversary Promise Scholar students and alumni will speak about the opportunities they’ve received through the College’s many programs. One of the attending scholars, Antoine Mauldin, was recently recognized as this year’s recipient of the Hayward L. Bell Scholarship.

People of the College

SHAWANA
I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
KAVON
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
PALUMA
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
SYMEON
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
