Central Penn College career counselor Rubina Azizdin was recognized Aug. 30 as the West Shore Chamber Luminary Award Shining Star winner at an awards luncheon honoring 13 extraordinary female professionals nominated for their contributions to the workplace and community.

Cheering Azizdin on during the event, Career Services Director Steve Hassinger shared, "It is great to see Rubina's hard work and dedication recognized with this award. She has a passion for helping others develop both personally and professionally. It has been a joy to watch her build strong relationships that have led to internship and job opportunities for our students and alumni. I look forward to continuing to work beside her as she impacts the lives of our stakeholders."

The Women in Business Roundtable Committee, who created this prestigious event voted in a blind review process and a portion of the event proceeds will benefit Junior Achievement, a Chamber nonprofit of Azizdin's choice.

When asked about the experience, Azizdin said, “I am honored beyond belief to receive this level of recognition. It brings me much joy to be able to help our local community and promote diversity and women empowerment. Being recognized served as a reminder to me that I am going somewhere on the right path to serve my purpose.”

Central Penn was proud to have two representatives in the running for this prestigious award. Along with Azizdin, Sandra Box, Education Foundation associate director, was among the 13 award nominees. Exemplifying Central Penn’s mission to foster graduates who have a positive impact on their professions and communities, they serve as role models for our students and the surrounding community.
