Marcia Pfeiffer, president of St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley, will be honored by the St. Louis Gateway Chapter of the Older Women’s League (OWL) at its Women of Worth Banquet Oct. 16.


Pfeiffer will be one of 12 women recognized at the banquet honoring outstanding women who have contributed greatly to the community through their professional and/or volunteer work.


Pfeiffer was named Florissant Valley campus president in December 2002 after serving as interim president the previous 11 months. She joined the Florissant Valley faculty in 1980 as an instructor in the food service management program, and then served as department chair for seven years. She also served three years as the district Tech Prep coordinator. She later served as associate dean for business and human development for four years, and as executive dean from July 2000 until her appointment as interim president.


Under Pfeiffer’s leadership, the Emerson Center for Engineering and Manufacturing was constructed and opened, and the Florissant Valley campus was selected for the Gateway to College replication project.


Pfeiffer serves as secretary of the Missouri Biotechnology Association Board of Directors and as vice president of the Missouri Community College Association Presidents and Chancellors Council.


Pfeiffer has received recognition from various organizations, most recently the Shirley B. Gordon Award of Distinction from Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year institutions. The award is presented to community college executive officers for outstanding effort given toward promoting the goals of Phi Theta Kappa and their respective campus chapters.
