U.S. Congresswoman Judy Chu announced that Dr. Jacqueline Jacobs is this year’s winner of the Women of Distinction Award representing Altadena.

Dr. Jacobs is President/CEO of Aspire West and the Pasadena Student Success Center. She is particularly well known for her former work as Vice President of Instruction at Pasadena City College.

The award, now in its sixth year, will be given out at a ceremony on April 18, 2015.

Rep. Chu will speak at the event and recognize the honorees.

“I am so proud of the honorees and their incredible contributions to our district,” said Chu. “This year’s women are teachers, executives, scientists, activists, entrepreneurs, community leaders, volunteers, and professionals. Each was nominated by somebody in their community in recognition and appreciation of their hard work. And with this award each year, I look forward to this opportunity to express our appreciation as well.”

The 2015 Women of Distinction Awards will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2015, 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at San Marino Center, 1800 Huntington Dr., in San Marino.
