STLCC to Receive 2011 Greater St. Louis Top 50 Award

November 08, 2011

St. Louis Community College has been chosen by the St. Louis Regional Chamber and Growth Association as a recipient of the 2011 Greater St. Louis Top 50 Award.

Selection for the award is based on an organization’s contributions to the St. Louis region and how it positively impacts the future of the business community. The Greater St. Louis Top 50 Awards program is presented by the St. Louis RCGA in conjunction with RubinBrown.

Winners of the 2011 Greater St. Louis Top 50 will be recognized and presented an award at the annual awards dinner to be held Monday, Nov. 14, in the Khorassan Ballroom of the Chase Park Plaza. STLCC also will be featured as an award recipient in the November-December issue of St. Louis Commerce Magazine.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the St. Louis region’s premier providers of higher education and workforce training,” said Myrtle E.B. Dorsey, Ph.D., STLCC chancellor. “Continuing a nearly five-decade tradition, St. Louis Community College is committed to preparing all of St. Louis for the economic, social and cultural challenges ahead.”

Since its founding in 1962, more than 1.2 million students have benefited from courses and services offered by STLCC. Through innovative partnerships and state-of-the-art programs, STLCC is a vital element of the local, regional and state economy. The total economic impact of St. Louis Community College is more than $3 billion.

In the past six years, the college has awarded students with more than 12,200 degrees and certificates in programs such as allied health, business administration, general transfer studies, information systems, life sciences, engineering and technology-related areas. Approximately 1,800 STLCC students transfer annually to Missouri four-year colleges and universities. Nearly 90 percent of all STLCC graduates remain in the region.
