PUM Black History Salutes: Valerie Njie, Executive Director/Senior Vice-President, Bidwell Training Center, Inc.
PUM Celebrating Black History Month 2014 Featuring Pittsburgh Leaders Who Inspire Valerie Njie, Executive Director/Senior Vice-President, Bidwell Training Center, Inc. Valerie Njie is committed to making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate. Her professional career started as an elementary education teacher in East Chicago Heights, Illinois. But she quickly realized that most of the children's problems stemmed from societal ills that plagued their parents and the impoverished communities that imprisoned them. Since obtaining a Master's Degree in Management in 1973, Valerie has worked tirelessly to enhance the quality of people's lives throughout the United States and The Gambia, West Africa, by eliminating road blocks to success via quality educational opportunities. At Bidwell Training Center, Inc. where Valerie recently celebrated 32 years of service, the mission is WE CHANGE LIVES. Valerie oversees the operation of a state licensed, accredited career training institution that has trained and placed thousands of graduates in meaningful jobs throughout the region since 1968. She is responsible for ensuring that the highest educational standards and services are afforded to everyone and that her adult students are treated with dignity and respect. She feels blessed to be a change agent and strives to empower students with life-long skills that can free them from a revolving door of dependency and hopelessness. Under Valerie's leadership, Bidwell was named a 2012 School of Excellence by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). Valerie was influenced by her mother, grandmother and other African-American women in Homestead who taught her the importance of a higher sense of calling, spirituality, education and service to others. Those early lessons explain why she strives for excellence in everything she does and encourages others to be purposeful about improving their lives and surroundings. Valerie's husband Saihou, an accomplished artist, has been a source of encouragement and has influenced her creativity and expertise in photography. She is the proud mother of two extremely talented daughters, Lingaire and Njaimeh; both graduates of Washington University in St. Louis and the grandmother of Jibril, age 3. She feels the decades of organizing events with them have stretched her abilities to enormous heights. Valerie has spent considerable time as a team leader conducting 70 accreditation visits to ACCSC schools throughout the US and Puerto Rico since 2002. In 2007, she became a member of the commission's Standing Appeals Panel and was recently elected an ACCSC School Commissioner for the period 2013-17.
