Charles Page will receive 2015 President’s Award by Monterey Peninsula College

Charles Page, former Monterey Peninsula College trustee and long time community activist, has been chosen to receive the 2015 President's Award by Monterey Peninsula College and its foundation.

The President’s Award is presented annually to a community leader who has made significant contributions to the Monterey Peninsula and has helped fulfill the college’s mission of providing educational opportunities to diverse communities.

Page was selected to receive the award because of his work as an attorney, his service as Monterey city councilman and a longtime member of the Board of Trustees at Monterey Peninsula College, MPC President Walter Tribley said in a statement.

"But that’s not all. Charlie, along with his late wife, Caroline Page, and other community leaders, began meeting in 1994 with the idea of starting a foundation to support Monterey Peninsula College," Tribley said. "Even then, before a rash of budget cuts, these community leaders realized MPC would never have enough money to reach its full potential unless the community stepped up. They understood that a foundation would bring additional money to help the college thrive - and it has done exactly that.”

The award will be presented May 1 at the 9th annual president’s address to the community at the Monterey Conference Center.
