Congratulations to our 2020 winners! Check out their bio's below:
Dr. John Woznicki '87
President's Distinguished Award

Dr. Woznicki has distinguished himself as a leader in higher education, first as a dedicated and well-respected faculty member and scholar. He has been a full-time faculty member at institutions such as Holy Family University, Georgian Court University and Thomas Edison State University. Currently he is the Dean of Graduate Studies, at Delaware Valley University.

He has published two books on American poetry and has given numerous presentations at regional and national conferences. Over the last decade, he has championed the liberal arts in his administrative positions. He has been consulted by the media regarding the importance of studying the liberal arts.

In addition to his professional accomplishments in the workplace, Dr. Woznicki brought his expertise in teaching and learning to his volunteer position on the Lambertville Public School Board, working to improve elementary and secondary education initiatives and preparing the next generation of college students.

He is a testament to the power of a Bucks education, using it to jump-start the path towards his Ph.D., and his professional accomplishments and personal character are something that can serve as an inspiration to today's Bucks students.
David Feinman '13
Community Service Award
David Feinman, a graduate of Bucks County Community College Class of 2013, is a true example of how people can use their hobbies, skills and abilities for the good of others. Feinman is the co-founder of several companies that provide positive activities for the students at Bucks as well as the community at large.

In high school, he combined his interest in entrepreneurship and love of running, and launched the Bucks County Half Marathon which took place in Tyler Park, and The Zombie Run, which was one of the largest zombie-themed races in the country.

Feinman enrolled in Bucks County Community College's Two-in-Two program, to continue his education while growing his businesses. As a freshman at Bucks, David also took on the role of Race Director for the Autism Cares Foundation, an organization he continues to serve today, assisting them in raising about $100,000 annually for their cause.

Feinman went on to earn a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from the Fox School of Business and Management, and in 2015, co-founded a dynamic, social media marketing agency called Viral Ideas Marketing ( ), where he assists clients in creating videos. Feinman also created an on-demand video editing company called Flixation ( ) which does on-demand video editing for companies like Google and eBay.

The College department of Business and Innovation recently invited Feinman to be a guest on its podcast, 10x10 where he was able to share his story and advice with aspiring entrepreneurs. Bucks students, and the entire community gain insight into real-world career opportunities by tapping into the experience and talent of young alumni role models like David Feinman. 
Glenn Bostock '81
Professional Achievement Award

Bucks alumnus Glenn Bostock is the kind of person who exemplifies how a community college education can pave the path to a solid career. Today, he heads SnapCab, a company that employs 120 people at its facilities in Warrington and in Kingston, Ontario, manufacturing elevator interiors and innovative workspace products.

In 1979, Bostock enrolled at Bucks as a fine woodworking major. He took classes in business, the chemistry of wood, wood history, and (his favorite) glassblowing.
Bostock's father, a partner in an elevator maintenance company, tutored his son on the ways in which to operate an elevator during renovations.

By 1998, Bostock had streamlined the amount of time needed to remodel an elevator interior from four days to only one by creating a patented interlocking paneling system that allowed for flexibility and forgiveness in its installation. Bostock attributes this skill to a modular design technique he learned as a student at Bucks County Community College.

As a student, Bostock admits he struggled academically, due in part to a learning disability and dyslexia. He has said, in retrospect, he wishes he hadn't focused quite so much on the grades he got in his classes, but rather the lessons he learned, saying, "Just know that it's a building block for your life.”

Today, he prides himself on fostering a fear-free culture at SnapCab, where team members are rewarded for mistakes and provided with the opportunity to continually improve their work and their selves. His suggestion to Bucks students today is to focus on how you can help enrich not just your own lives, but the lives of everyone around you.
Marianne Kepler '83
Centurion Award

B ucks County Community College faculty member Marianne Kepler has made many important contributions to the campus community. She has served on many committees at Bucks, most recently as chairperson of the Student Affairs Committee. As a member of the Sustainability Committee she was part of a team responsible for bringing water bottle refill stations to the college campuses to help minimize plastic bottle waste in the environment.

Striving to enhance the health and well-being of our staff, faculty and students, Marianne initiated meditation and yoga sessions on our campuses. She is responsible for bringing sexual abuse prevention training workshops to Bucks County Community College.

In addition to enriching the lives of the Bucks community through all of the initiatives that she has supported, Marianne is a valuable faculty member who is highly respected by her colleagues, her students and the Bucks community.
