HCC Chancellor named 2015 NCMPR Pacesetter of the Year

(l-r) Dane Dewbre, secretary, NCMPR District 4; Joe Huff, president, NCMPR District 4; Dr. Cesar Maldonado, HCC chancellor; and Fritz Guthrie, director, HCC Communications Services attended the National Council for Marketing and Public Relations Annual award ceremony where Chancellor Maldonado was awarded the NCMPR 2015 Pacesetter of the Year. 

 

HOUSTON [November 9, 2015] – Congratulations to Houston Community College (HCC) Chancellor Dr. Cesar Maldonado. The National Council for Marketing & Public Relations (NCMPR) named him the 2015 Pacesetter of the Year during the recent District 4 Conference. District 4 represents several states, 60 community colleges, and 289 members. The coveted award recognizes a president or CEO at a two-year community or technical college who has demonstrated leadership and support in the area of college communications and marketing.

“I am honored to receive this top recognition from NCMPR,” said Dr. Maldonado. “The award is proof the communications team at Houston Community College is dedicated to sharing the stories of student success.”

Maldonado has been at HCC – one of the largest community colleges in the nation – since May 2014. One of his highest goals is to meet the Houston workforce needs. In just 18 months at the helm of HCC, Maldonado has achieved part of that goal through the establishment of 12 “Centers of Excellence,” which are located near businesses and provide specialized training for that particular industry.

“Businesses and industry are excited by the model and are sharing resources and money with the college to support these initiatives,” conference publications stated. Such programs are defining new pathways for student success.

The NCMPR recognized two other individuals for Communicator of the Year and Rising Star Award. Joe Huff III, NCMPR District 4 Director, noted this year’s award winners exemplified the professionalism and dedication required to ensure community colleges continue to provide the educational opportunities needed for individuals looking to jumpstart careers, transition to a higher level of learning or move up the corporate ladder of a chosen profession.

“We at NCMPR take seriously our role of recognizing outstanding achievement in college communications,” Huff said. “This year’s recipients were remarkable in their accomplishments and their dedication to their respective colleges and it is only fitting that they received this well-deserved recognition.”
