The award is named after Dr. Richard H. Hagemeyer, CPCC’s first president who led the college 23 years, from a trade school with 1,200 students to one of the state’s largest community colleges.

Nominations are being sought for individuals who have:

  • demonstrated community involvement and social responsibility.

The college will recognize this year’s winner at CPCC’s commencement ceremony on Thursday, May 15, 2014, and a one-year scholarship will be granted to a CPCC student in an area of study reflective of the winner’s background.
