PALO ALTO COLLEGE RECEIVES ASPEN INSTITUTE'S RISING STAR AWARD




PALO ALTO COLLEGE RECEIVES ASPEN INSTITUTE'S RISING STAR AWARD


On April 2, the Aspen Institute's College Excellence Program announced that Palo Alto College was named a Rising Star award winner of the 2019 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, the nation's signature recognition of high achievement and performance among America's community colleges. Palo Alto College was selected from an original pool of over 1,000 community colleges nationwide, and was then named one of only 15 in Texas to the top 150 community colleges eligible for the Aspen Prize.  Palo Alto College moved forward to the next round of the competition by submitting an application in November 2017. The application, which included the Catch the Next Ascender program as one of PAC’s initiatives, was reviewed through a rigorous evaluation before PAC was announced as one of three Rising Star award winners.  Each "Rising Star" winner will receive $100,000. https://www.alamo.edu/pac/about-pac/recognitions/aspen/

“Representing the Alamo Colleges District and community colleges across the nation at this level is an honor for each one of us at Palo Alto College, and this achievement would not have been possible without our faculty and staff's commitment to the journey and the support of our entire community, including the leadership of the Alamo Colleges District," said Dr. Robert Garza, president of Palo Alto College.
