Dear Business Associates,

On behalf of the Meridian Community College Foundation, you are invited to be a part of the 2016-2017 Meridian Community College Annual Campaign.  We are celebrating MCC…Building Community.  Your local community college, MCC, is continuously building a stronger community by recognizing and responding to the needs of the people we serve.

MCC’s dedication to our community is evident in the expansion of our physical presence in Lauderdale County.  Here are a few examples of MCC…Building Community:

We are celebrating the 20th year of the Tuition Guarantee Program.  From 1996 to 2015, we have had approximately 6631 Tuition Guarantee contracts submitted.

MCC has been ranked the seventh best community college in America, and the highest ranking community college in the Southern United States.

According to the Obama Administration’s annual college Report Card, MCC has the highest graduation rate among Mississippi’s 15 public community colleges.

MCC offers 52 different Career and Technical programs, including the second largest nursing school in the state among Mississippi’s community colleges.

MCC has enrolled as many as 4,300 credit students per year, and last year engaged another 13,000 individuals in customized workforce training programs (those numbers do not include others we serve in adult basic education, fine arts programs, and continuing education classes).

MCC continues to grow.  Currently we have three new buildings under construction.  This is economic development for your hometown.

Each time you share your resources with Meridian Community College, you are not just making a donation, you are investing in lives!  Your contribution opens doors for our students to get the education they need for better jobs.  This directly benefits our community!  We are so very grateful for all that you do.

Sincerely,
Tim Hogan
President, MCC Foundation

P.S.  I have already made my pledge, so I invite you to join me in supporting the MCC…Building Community campaign.
