2017 Women of Distinction Award Nomination Form


Piedmont Community College is now accepting nominations for the college’s first Women of Distinction Awards. This award recognizes the accomplishments of local women who exemplify the vision and mission of the college by being a contributor to their own community and beyond, and have demonstrated excellence in the categories of Education, Community Development, Business, Healthcare, Community Service, or Volunteer Caregiving.
