Foundation Partners Students

The MCC Foundation’s 26th Annual Earle A. Connelly Golf Tournament was a huge success, thanks to the event sponsors and the nineteen teams who competed this year. The April 12th event brought in over $20,000, the highest amount yet! 

The winner of this year’s tournament was the Colonial LP Gas team, of Troy.

The funds raised from this event are used to support Continuing Education Occupational Scholarships, the Sandra Miller High School Student Assistance fund, the college’s annual MLK Day Challenge, Faculty and Staff Member of the Year Awards, campus Diversity Day, MCC’s popular Summer Camps, Student Government Association Ambassador scholarships and mini-grants for faculty and staff
