The Honorary Alumni Award was established during PCC's 50th Anniversary in 2011. It is presented to individuals who are not PCC graduates but have adopted the college as their own by demonstrating outstanding service, substantial commitment and loyalty. These award recipients have made significant contributions to PCC's welfare, prestige, and pursuit of excellence. Selections are made by the PCC Alumni Association Awards Committee.
