“A Night at the Roundtable” is Co-Chaired by Donna Frisby-Greenwood, President-CEO, The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia, and Bret Perkins, Vice President of External and Government Affairs for Comcast NBCUniversal.

“Each of these awardees are leaders, influencers and advocates in college access and success,” said PCPR director Thomas Butler. “They are being awarded for their service, impact, civic and community engagement.”

The Philadelphia College Prep Roundtable (PCPR) seeks to strengthen a community of college access and success practitioners who believe in the potential of all individuals and help students navigate the path to and through higher education. PCPR provides tools, resources and opportunities for discourse; support leadership development in the field; and seek to bridge the gap between policy, research and practice in the area of college access and completion.

PCPR is a New Beginnings Nonprofit Incubator program of Resources for Human Development (RHD). RHD’s New Beginnings Nonprofit Incubator operates as a support system for several startup nonprofit organizations in the Philadelphia region, aiding the growth and development of community-based programs that stimulate creativity and maximize positive impact in our community. New Beginnings provides organizations with the resources they need to develop skills and build their capacity and effectiveness.

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.
