Tricia Pritchard

Director of Community Employment Development

Communication Instructor

Butler County Community College


I am passionate about people and helping others achieve their goals through education, motivation, support, and kindness. My extensive and rewarding career has encompassed many areas, including: teaching, higher education, training, public speaking, TV, customer service, sales, marketing, public relations, event planning, fundraising, and team building. Presently, I oversee a Personal Empowerment training program at Butler County Community College (BC3).

What is Personal Empowerment Training? It is emotional intelligence training that offers participants the tools and techniques to build self-confidence and become the best version of themselves. Personal Empowerment Training is anchored in these four foundational building blocks: • Self-Awareness • Self-Control • Social (Other) Awareness • Relationship Management Developed by Twin Cities R!SE Empowerment Institute, this 24-hour cohort-based training will explore over 40 emotional concepts such as beliefs, self-esteem, empathy, active listening, and managing conflict. Participants’ increased knowledge, practice, and application encourage new perspectives and habits.


In addition to my BC3 position, I also host a community-based TV show called, “The Butler Buzz,” for Armstrong Group of Companies. In this fun role, I interview community leaders about special projects, upcoming events, and nonprofits. Each episode airs on Armstrong’s channels 10 and 100, Armstrong’s YouTube channel (+7,000 subscribers), and wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts. This is a free service provided by Armstrong to support the good work in our communities. Growing up in a big family in Conneaut Lake, PA, my parents instilled in us the love of faith, family, education, hard work, and service. I continue these life lessons (traditions) always with my own family. My husband, Rob, and I are the proud parents of three: Riley (22), Abby (21) and Renee (19).


I also actively support: Christian Business Partners, Center for Community Resources, Twilight Wish Foundation, Butler County Special Olympics, and Butler County Area Vocational-Technical School.

I received both my M.A. and B.A. in Communication Studies at Duquesne University.
