Trailblazers in Transformation Awards

Peirce College created the Trailblazers in Transformation award to recognize extraordinary students and alumni who embody the College’s spirit of innovation through their academic, professional and personal achievements. We are honored to present the inaugural Trailblazer in Transformation Awards at the Executive Leadership Breakfast to two remarkable individuals:

  • DIANA KIRKLAND ’14, ’16: Diana is a US Navy veteran who overcame addiction and other challenges to advance her career and her life. She earned both her associates and bachelor’s degrees in Paralegal Studies from Peirce College as a proud mother of six. Today, Diana serves as a Legal Administrative Specialist with the regional office of the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs in Philadelphia, where she helps veterans and their family members access and understand their veteran benefits.
  • JOSH SLOCUM ’20: Josh is a Cloud Desk Agent for Comcast, where he helps small and midsize companies with software solutions. He is also enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree program at Peirce College and is expected to be part of Peirce’s Class of 2020. Josh’s main inspiration for managing a full time career while advancing his education is to keep a promise he made to his parents, and to remain focused on becoming a great leader.
