She is one of ten women, including one young adult, who was awarded the honor. Through their careers or volunteer activities, all honorees have enhanced business, education, culture or philanthropy and provided outstanding service to our region.

Bishop-Clark has worked at Miami University for 27 years and her "transformational leadership of Miami University's regional campuses is highly visible in four impressive areas – development of a new academic division, development of new degrees, development of a new facility, and development of new relationships," said her nominator.

As Regional Associate Dean, Bishop-Clark co-chaired the committee to implement the first new academic division created at Miami University in over 40 years: the College of Professional Studies and Applied Sciences. In her roles as Regional Associate Dean and CIT department chair she spearheaded the implementation of the Health Information major, the first ever bachelor's degree in CIT, and to date, has facilitated the development of five other new bachelor degree programs. As Associate Dean at the Middletown campus she led Miami's efforts to build a new educational facility: Greentree Health Science Academy.

Outside her academic roles Bishop-Clark has participated, along with her daughter, in a mission trip to Haiti, working with a medical team to serve Haitians in remote villages. She and her daughter have given presentations to educate others about these mission trips and inform them how they can take part. In 2015 Bishop-Clark was the Chair of the Middletown United Way Campaign. The campaign raised 1.6 million dollars, exceeding its goal by $300,000. She also serves on the Middletown Community Foundation Board of Trustees.

"Cathy is a true visionary and has consistently worked hard to keep Miami University Regionals in the forefront of education," said Dr. G. Michael Pratt, associate provost and dean of the regional campuses. "We congratulate Cathy on this well deserved honor."

The honorees will be recognized at the Annual Women of Excellence Dinner and Gala on November 20.
