Honoring RCC's Pioneers

Through the 50 Pioneers Project, 49 individuals who have made significant contributions to the College over the past 50 years are being honored, with one pioneer representing the collective contributions of the Greater Roxbury Community. Nominees were evaluated based on leadership; community influence and impact; innovation and achievement; commitment to RCC’s values; academic contributions; and excellence in student support.
