The Capel family has strong ties with Montgomery Community College. From leading the campaign to establish a college in the county, to providing financial support to the foundation, to volunteering their time and talents to fill many leadership roles on campus, the Capel family values education and strives to provide equal learning opportunities for all residents. Continuing this rich familial legacy of support, Richard and Arron W.E. Capel III, along with another longtime supporter of the college, Bruce Hric, founded the Capel, Capel, and Hric Endowment to provide scholarship assistance to Montgomery Community College students pursuing curriculum studies.
