Largo, MD – Prince George’s Community College will host its bi-annual Partners for Success Awards Dinner and Gala where the Honorable Senator Barbara Mikulski, Lockheed Martin and Kaiser Permanente will be the official guests of honor. Presented by Prince George’s Community College Foundation, Inc., in partnership with Prince George’s Community College, the prestigious event brings some of Washington, D.C.’s most influential civic and business leaders together for a night of celebration and learning about the college’s fundraising efforts and community impact. The awards dinner and gala is being held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland on Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in the Maryland Ballrooms B/D.

“I’m so pleased to receive this tremendous honor from Prince George’s Community College for my fight for Maryland students to have access to quality, affordable higher education,” said U.S. Senator Barbara A. Mikulski, a member of the Senate Community College Caucus. “In order to out-build and out-innovate the rest of the world, we must first out-educate. Prince George’s Community College is leading the way in cyber education as home to the National Cyberwatch Center, preparing our cyber workforce for jobs that keep our nation safer and Maryland’s economy stronger. And through investments in STEM education, we are developing future leaders in science and innovation who are making discoveries that lead to new products and new jobs. As a former community college teacher, I want to honor all those who every day are ensuring Maryland students are getting a first-class education, preparing them today for jobs tomorrow.”

“We embarked upon the Purpose, People, Possibilities campaign four years ago seeking to engage our stakeholders in a collaborative effort to sustain the level of excellence at Prince George’s Community College in support of academic and workforce development programs, scholarships and services and technology, equipment and furnishings.  The campaign generated overwhelming results that we are excited to share with those who were instrumental in making it happen at our biennial Partners for Success Awards dinner.”
