RANDMOTHER, PHILLY NATIVE...
For the last 20 years, President Simcox has commuted from her
Conshohocken home to the PA College campus - a testament
of her devotion to her family and her career. Twenty years ago,
with a son nearly graduated from high school, a daughter in
eighth grade and a husband with a career of his own at Penn
Medicine, the time was not right to uproot her family. Now with
her children grown (and grandchildren growing!), President
Simcox continues to travel between her two home bases.
The head of the med-surg floor saw it all those years ago, when
he kept requesting President Simcox as a candy striper to his
floor and later hired her as a graduate. And so did the ICU,
and the nursing school, and eventually our College. President
Simcox has this tenacity, this determination, this enduring
will to succeed that has made the College what it is today.
She had the vision for what this College could be, and brought
the willpower, grit and resolve to get us here, no matter what
obstacles she encountered along the way. Her legacy will
continue at PA College long after her time as president has
come to an end.

"We have been very fortunate to have Mary Grace as our
leader since the inception of our college. She has guided
all of our success to date. Mary Grace is a leader with
vision, passion, and a strong commitment to
excellence for our students, faculty and staff."
