An institution dedicated to imparting academic and professional success, Prince George’s Community College (PGCC) endeavors to keep its most promising  and self-motivated students on the fast track to personal achievement.

PGCC is inspiring future leaders.

Named a “National Center of Academic Excellence”, Prince George’s Community College is proud to announce that Noemi Ana Smith has been selected as the student speaker for the 2014 Trustee Leadership Conference, sponsored by the Maryland Association of Community Colleges (MACC). The second-year native of Argentina was selected from a long list of dynamic students representing several Maryland community colleges. With this honor, Miss Smith will be addressing the Board of Trustees, presidents and administrators of Maryland’s 16 community colleges, and other invited guests attending the conference on Monday, February 3, 2014 in Annapolis, MD.

"I am honored and excited to represent Prince George's Community College at this year's conference,” said Noemi Smith. “I still can’t believe I was chosen...this is such an amazing opportunity as a student!”

In choosing the student speaker, the group overseeing the selection process took several qualities into account. “The student should have a powerful story to the affect that attending a community college has impacted their lives,” said Rohry Flood, director of Student Life, Chesapeake College, when discussing the criteria used in choosing a speaker. “They should express the changes that have taken place as a result of the relationships they have formed on their campus and beyond.” 

“We are very proud anytime a student strives for academic achievement,” said Dr. Charlene Dukes, president of Prince George’s Community College. “Noemi is one of our brightest and most promising students, and she fully represents the sentiment of our College and community--which is to Envision Success.”
