Local businessman Bob Malone donated a 2.5 acre tract of land to Meridian Community College at a ceremony Wednesday afternoon.

Malone says support of MCC is important to the area's economic future.

"If we're going to have the kind of economic growth we want here, it's very important that we have an education connection that can serve our future growth and future employers. Believing in education and in the positive value of education is a heritage in my family that I learned from childhood and was always taught," said Malone of Acme Realty.

The tract is located next to the college and will likely be used for a new dormitory.
