"Across the state of Texas, families are grappling with the impact of both a healthcare crisis and the economic shock caused by the pandemic," said Bing. "Making education and training more accessible, and better-aligned to labor market needs is more important than ever if we hope to fulfill the promise of economic mobility that is a cornerstone of the American dream. This honor celebrates the efforts of the whole CHCP team across our nine campuses, online college and imaging institute to help our learners achieve that dream."

CHCP has recently been featured nationally for its work helping adult learners secure jobs and succeed in high-demand healthcare careers. The college's trailblazing stackable certificate program was featured earlier this year in a McGraw Hill case study for its success in supporting parent learners. In addition, CHCP's campuses continue to be named top workplaces across Texas.

"Eric is a true servant leader whose work embodies CHCP's commitment to providing support and care for every learner and every patient," said Joe Cortez, CHCP McAllen campus president. "This accomplishment is a reflection of our entire team's efforts to ensure that working learners across the state of Texas have the support they need to navigate a tumultuous and uncertain labor market."
