Once a Temple Owl, Colin O’Leary attended Temple University and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science. With plans to go to law school, he worked at a law firm for a little over one year but soon realized that’s not how he envisioned spending the rest of his life. So, he followed his heart and enrolled in Community College of Philadelphia’s Culinary Arts degree program in the fall of 2019 and became a CCP Lion.
“My parents own a bar and restaurant, so I’ve been around food most of my life,” Colin said. “Cooking is something I’m used to and it’s the one thing I love to do, so I just went for it.”

On May 4, John Wiggins will celebrate his one-year work anniversary at the College. When he joined the College as director of Construction last spring, Wiggins oversaw all new construction projects and renovations that took place at the main campus and any of the three regional locations.
Less than a year later, he was promoted to associate vice president of Facilities and Construction. In this new role, he has some of the same responsibilities with a few added tasks: overseeing housekeeping and environmental services, building maintenance and plant operations. However, his most pressing responsibility to date is to assist with the safe reopening of the College.
