As the Class of 2019 prepares to graduate, they will be led by a classmate who has fully embraced his experience at Delaware County Community College. Chan-Woo Kim ’19 was recently named the Outstanding Student Award recipient in recognition of his student service and leadership to the College and/or community and his academic achievement. A mathematics major, Kim holds a 4.0 GPA, works as a College Welcome Ambassador and has tutored peers in math and chemistry. He has also served with Phi Theta Kappa, the Student Government Association and is the current Student Alumni Ambassador connecting students of past and present at events throughout the year.

In addition to receiving the Outstanding Student Award, Kim will serve as the Student Commencement Speaker next month. Kim has demonstrated his ability to always go the extra mile to aid both students and staff. After graduation, he plans to transfer to Swarthmore, Amherst or Colby College to continue his studies.

As an international student from Korea, One faculty member in particular made an impact when he arrived in 2016. Michael Sidoti, a career counselor at the College for over four decades was always encouraging during their interactions. As Kim went to share his good news with his mentor, he was informed that days earlier unfortunately, Sidoti had passed away. Kim fondly remembers his mentor as “one of the most influential people in the college who changed my life. Without his encouragement, I would not have dreamed of pursing my education in a four-year institution.”

Students like Kim and colleagues like Mike Sidoti are essential to our mission here at the College. Their passion for helping students is part of our foundation as an educational partner in the community. Congratulations to all members of the Class of 2019. This year’s ceremony will be live streamed and follow the College on social media ( (
