RIVERS CASINO’S RAHMON HART NAMED TO PITTSBURGH PUBLIC SCHOOLS’ DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI HALL OF FAME
Director of Community Relations Recognized for Outstanding Community Service
PITTSBURGH — April 26, 2017 — Rahmon Hart, director of community relations at Rivers Casino, was recently named to the Pittsburgh Public Schools (PPS) Distinguished Alumni Hall of Fame. Hart has been recognized for his outstanding engagement with the Pittsburgh community through several community-driven initiatives, such as the Rivers Casino Community Champions program, in which casino Team Members volunteer at local charitable organizations each month. Hart is one of seven inductees selected out of more than 30 nominations by a panel of judges.
Hart will join his fellow inductees as the first class since 2007, to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. After more than a decade, Superintendent Dr. Anthony Hamlet revived the Hall of Fame program to pay homage to PPS graduates who have made remarkable professional achievements coupled with service to the community. This year’s class of inductees is identified by three elite categories: Distinguished Alumni, Distinguished Educator and Young Professional.
“We are proud of all the incredible work Rahmon has done in building such a strong relationship between the community and our Team Members,” said Craig Clark, general manager of Rivers Casino. “I cannot think of a more deserving person to receive this honor and recognition. We’re so fortunate to have Rahmon as a part of our team.”
Inductees and their guests will celebrate this prestigious recognition on Thursday, April 27 at the district’s strategic launch event at Heinz Field in the UPMC Club Lounge. In addition to learning more about this year’s inductees, attendees will be able to meet with members of Dr. Hamlet’s cabinet and engage with future PPS graduates. As the revival of the Hall of Fame program also stems from the district’s launch of a five-year strategic plan, a student expo outlining the district’s offerings will also be on display during the event.
“It’s an honor to be included with this group of exceptional professionals,” said Rahmon Hart. “I’m thankful to be a part of a team that values the importance of community outreach and to have the support of Rivers Casino so that we can give back to the City of Pittsburgh.”
