The award recognizes outstanding female leaders under the age of 40 working at a community college.

We honor them for their extraordinary efforts to support the community college mission," said MCC President, Dr. Beverly Walker-Griffea.

"This is a tremendous honor for our Chapter," said Dr. Sounya Walker, MCC Chapter President. "It would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of our members."
The MCC Chapter of the AAWCC was founded in 2015. At 56 members strong, the chapter has forged partnerships both on and off campus, and participated in various service projects since its inception. Service projects include those related to Breast Cancer Awareness through Think Pink activities, Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids' Sake, the Equal Pay Day Women's Luncheon, and the MCC AAWCC Scholarship Brunch. The Chapter also supports professional development initiatives including leadership development, volunteering as mentors through the MCC Women In Education (WIE) Mentoring Program for female students, the Bowling Scholarship Fun-Raiser, and empowerment programs such as the recent AAWCC Day of Dialogue/Campus and Community Basic Needs Resource Fair in providing hygiene bags for students on campus.
