“McLennan Community College (MCC) focuses on removing the life obstacles our students face so they may concentrate more on achieving their academic goals. As early investors in an emergency fund, MCC awards small one-time grants for students encountering extraordinary events or circumstances that could negatively affect their ability to continue their studies. Additionally, the College addresses hunger insecurity with a free food pantry and transportation problems with free public transit passes. Students also have access to free comprehensive tutoring, mental health services, and personal success coaches. Finally, the McLennan Community College Board of Trustees and college employees believe “people matter,” and we accept the responsibility to ensure our students and community prosper.” — Dr. Johnette McKown, president of McLennan Community College
