Retiree Celebration

Thank You, PCC Retirees

*Blue roses represent the impossible or unattainable. When giving a blue rose to someone, you are saying, “you are extraordinarily wonderful and unique”. 

On Tuesday, September 22nd, PCC Retirees were presented with the 2020 Patron Award. The Patron Award is the college’s highest honor and was given in recognition of the significant and generous legacy of PCC faculty and staff.

At our celebration event, President Mark Mitsui spoke on college initiatives, the PCC Rose Scholar Ka Shawna Bell shared her inspiring story and we heard from a panel on how the college has responded during these challenging times. 

If you missed the event, you can watch the full recorded program. Thank you to our PCC Retirees for all their dedication and support of the college and our students!
