KCC named to 2015 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll KCC was the only community college and one of just 16 colleges and universities in the state to be listed on the 2015 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, the highest federal recognition an institution can receive for its commitment to community, service-learning and civic engagement. KCC was one of fewer than three dozen community colleges nationwide to make the list, which is administered by the federal Corporation for National & Community Service to recognize higher education institutions for exemplary community service programs and campus/community partnerships. It was the third consecutive year KCC earned the Honor Roll designation.
OCTOBER KCC remembers President Ed Haring In October 2016, the College hosted a celebration of the life of Dr. G. Edward Haring, a former president of KCC, who died Sept. 21, 2016, at the age of 71. Haring worked at KCC for 23 years and served as the institution’s third president from 2004 until his retirement in 2010. Haring had a passion for learning and dedicated his energy to making higher education more accessible and effectively aligned with the changing demands of modern times. Haring, who enjoyed a 32-year career in education, also was a community advocate and leader, working closely with organizations such as United Way and Battle Creek Unlimited. His legacy will continue to impact students and employees in various ways, including through the G. Edward Haring Scholarship Fund and the College’s Employee of the Semester honor, which is named after him.
