Alumnus of the Year Award

Mindy Satterfield named PCC "Alumnus of the Year" for 2014

No one was more surprised than Mindy Moore Satterfield to hear her own name called as the Piedmont Community College (PCC) Alumni Partnership's "Alumnus of the Year." After being presented the award by PCC Alumni Partnership chair Shirley Deal, a stunned Satterfield confessed, "But I was on the selection committee," not knowing that the meeting she attended was merely a sham designed to surprise the read award recipient.  And it worked! The award was presented on April 3 during the annual opening of the PCC student art exhibit at the Kirby Gallery in uptown Roxboro.

Satterfield, a 1993 PCC graduate with an Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Administration, has been a member of the PCC Alumni Partnership Cabinet since 2005.  She serves as the Cabinet's vice chair and as a member of various committees.  She also supports the Partnership financially.  Satterfield has been described as a PCC Alumni volunteer who is "always willing to assist with any function" where she is asked to help.

"I have always admired her dedication to whatever task, job or committee on which she serves.  Additionally, she has been and continues to be dedicated to the needs of her family," said one of the persons who nominated her for the award. Full Story | Event Photos
