PITTSBURGH-Bonita L. Richardson, assistant to the President and the Board of Trustees of the Community College of Allegheny County, has been named a Women of Excellence honoree for 2018 by the New Pittsburgh Courier. The honorees will be recognized at a special reception followed by a luncheon at the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh Hotel on Friday, October 12, at 12:00 p.m.

In a letter to the Class of 2018 Women of Excellence Award recipients, Rod Doss, editor and publisher of the New Pittsburgh Courier, details the criteria for being selected to join the elite group of African-American women who are making a real difference in their professions and communities:

"For your desire to explore, ability to build work anew and your creativity to reinvent traditions, we want to highlight you for your virtues of not only excellence but self-awareness and high standards as well."

Richardson, of Penn Hills, has served students in a variety of roles since joining CCAC in 1990. In her current role since 2004, she is primarily responsible for managing the offices of CCAC President Dr. Quintin Bullock and the CCAC Board of Trustees. Richardson is responsible for the planning and logistics of meetings of the board and its committees, and she works closely with the president and trustees to communicate information regarding college policies and procedures. She also serves as liaison to individual trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, students and external constituents, handling confidential matters and issues directed to the executive offices. Additionally, Richardson reviews items requiring the approval of the president or board; provides project management support; and is responsible for planning college events such as commencement, dedications, groundbreakings and receptions.

"I am honored and humbled to be named a Women of Excellence honoree by the New Pittsburgh Courier," said Richardson, who was nominated by CCAC Board of Trustees members and internal colleagues. "It is my pleasure and privilege to work with such a wonderful group of people."
