50th Anniversary Golden Gala


Celebrating Success - Shaping the Future

For half a century, students have come here chasing their dreams. This college has played a fundamental role in helping them achieve those ambitions, and consequently, our community has more lab technicians, welders, zoo keepers, accountants, chefs, mechanics, roofers, environmental engineers, artists ... the list goes on and on.

Help Shape the Future

The impact of PPCC, simply on an economic level, has been staggering. A recent study conducted by Emsi, a leading provider of economic impact reports, showed that PPCC has been contributing about more than $300 million annually to the Gross Regional Product (GRP).

But we see that impact on another level. The personal one. The level where a mother of four who didn't think she could afford college finds her way to becoming a nurse. The level where a young man drags himself out of homelessness to find his way to a rewarding career in cybersecurity. You can play a major role in those transformations.

Play a Part through our Golden Gala

-On Oct. 27, PPCC will mark our 50th anniversary and set the stage for an even brighter future for our community with a magnificent gala at The Broadmoor Hotel. We promise to bring a terrific program and fun evening to you.

Here are some ways you can get involved:

Please call 719-522-2013 for more information.
