Cecelia McCall, Secretary of the PSC from 2000 to 2006 and now a leader of the Retiree Chapter, was honored April 8 at the Representative Assembly of the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) with the "Not for Ourselves Alone -- Sandy Feldman Outstanding Leadership Award."
From the NYSUT website: Cecelia McCall, Ph.D., has been involved in the PSC for 45 years and in progressive politics even longer. Since her retirement in 2007, she has been even more active than she was as an "active member." Throughout her long history of progressive union activism, McCall has exemplified the motto "Not for Ourselves Alone." Every part of her work, from her scholarship to her teaching, from her civil rights activism to her work as an officer of the PSC, and now her leadership in the Social Safety Net campaign, has been premised on the idea that we do not and cannot exist "for ourselves alone." She has been a leader in several different organizations, inside and outside the academic workplace, all with a focus on expanding collective rights and opportunities.
