CCAC student Alysse Dambrot named Pennsylvania’s 2022 New Century Workforce Scholar
PITTSBURGH—Community College of Allegheny County student Alysse Dambrot, of Bridgeville, has been named a 2022 New Century Workforce Scholar and will receive a $1,250 scholarship. This scholarship is the first of its kind to support students at associate degree-granting institutions on a national scale as they plan to enter the workforce upon the completion of a degree or certificate. The program is sponsored by The Coca-Cola Foundation and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
New Century Workforce Scholars are selected based on their academic accomplishments, leadership, activities, and how they extend their intellectual talents beyond the classroom. Over 2,200 students were nominated from more than 1,200 college campuses across the country. Only one New Century Workforce Scholar was selected from each state.
“We congratulate Ms. Dambrot for receiving this prestigious scholarship, and we are honored to partner with The Coca-Cola Foundation to recognize her outstanding achievements,” said Phi Theta Kappa’s President and CEO Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner. “Scholarship programs like this are integral for creating opportunities for students to succeed as they prepare to enter the workforce and for putting college completion within reach.”
Dambrot is a second-year student in CCAC’s Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program. In 2021, she received the American Physical Therapy Association Pennsylvania Chapter (APTA PA) Student Leadership Award, which recognizes a student for facilitating and mentoring leadership skills and encouraging membership in the organization. She was nominated by CCAC Physical Therapist Professor and Program Coordinator Dr. Norman Johnson.
The New Century Workforce Scholars will be recognized in the fall.
