FRIENDS and SUPPORTERS Dear friends and supporters, Please join us in celebrating another great year at Metropolitan Community College (MCC). This report reflects the opportunities your generosity has created for students. MCC students come to us from diverse backgrounds with a wide array of goals. They turn to MCC for career and technical preparation, general education credits for baccalaureate transfer, lifelong-learning skills, career and college readiness, credentials for a promotion and encore career training, among other goals. Thanks to YOU, we are able to meet them where they are and help them get to where they are going. Thanks to YOU, we have removed financial barriers for students by awarding $299,340 through 421 scholarships. Many of our students have the drive and the ability but lack the financial means to pursue their educational goals. Your scholarships help make education a reality. Thanks to YOU, we have created a community college that reflects the needs of our four-county service area. When you speak, we listen. It is only through partnership with you that we can continue to be responsive to student and community needs. Thanks to YOU, we are able to invest in our remarkable faculty and staff who support and inspire students along their educational journey through mini-grant projects and program support funds. Thank you for helping to make Metropolitan Community College a great place to work and learn. In the coming year, we know you will continue to challenge us to realize our vision and inspire us to do even more.

Sincerely,

Randy Schmailzl MCC president

George Martin III Foundation president
