Cape Cod Community College seeks Pioneering Women nominations

Award honors a woman who has made an outstanding contribution

The Senior Advisory Committee of Cape Cod Community College is seeking nominations for its annual Pioneering Women award, now in its fifth year.  The award honors a woman who has made outstanding contributions to family, community, and society, giving unselfish lifelong dedication to blazing a pathway and changing the world.

Nominations must be no more than one printed page in length, and must contain a detailed rationale for the nomination, and nominator. They will be reviewed by The Senior Advisory Committee and an honoree chosen in consultation with President Schatzberg. Submissions will remain confidential throughout the process. Names of those not selected this year will not be released because they may be re-submitted in succeeding years.

Current students, faculty, staff, and trustees normally are not eligible for this particular honor because the College uses other mechanisms to honor members of these groups.

Past recipients have been:

  • Jo Ives and Juliet Bernstein of Chatham
  • Cathy Pastva of Barnstable
  • Hope Brooks, MD of Forestdale
  • Beverly Myers Bailey of Mashpee
  • Eleanor Grace of West Falmouth

Please submit nominations to Linda Houle, Assistant to the President no later than Friday February 19th.   Written submissions may be sent to: Office of the President, Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Road, West Barnstable MA 02668-1599.  Nominations may be submitted by email to: [email protected].
