WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The College of Westchester and President Mary Beth Del Balzo will be honored by the Business Council of Westchester at its prestigious Business Hall of Fame Awards Dinner.
The dinner will be held on on Tuesday, April 19 at the Glen Island Harbour Club in New Rochelle. The College and Del Balzo will receive the Family Owned Business award.
The College of Westchester has operated as a profitable, tax paying business owned by the same family for more than 40 years.
When Ernest Sutkowski purchased the College in 1973, then known as The Westchester Business Institute, it served 16 enrolled students and had a small number of faculty and staff.
The College of Westchester has grown into an average annual enrollment of 1,000-1,200 students and currently employs many area residents including 150 full-time and 75 part-time employees.
The College is located in a 50,000-square-foot, five-story building it owns in White Plains as well as two auxiliary buildings. Following action by the New York State Legislature in 1975 that allows proprietary career schools to become degree granting colleges, the College of Westchester has grown into a fully accredited degree-granting college offering certificates, associate and bachelor degrees.
In addition to operating successful campus-based programs, the College also offers a number of online programs at the associate and bachelor level.
