MCC Foundation Thanks Donors

Meridian, Miss. Meridian Community College hosted a luncheon to thank businesses and individuals for supporting its students.

The event honors those that contribute financial donations to the Tuition Guarantee Program through the MCC Foundation.

The program underwrites the cost of tuition for four semesters of study at MCC for any graduate of a Meridian or Lauderdale County high school, including home-schooled graduates.

"They need to know that what they are doing is going for a purpose," said Donnie Smith, vice-chairman of the MCC Foundation. "You get a lot of requests for charity giving every year, but you can see actually for what this goes for."

MCC officials say the college's graduates show the program works.

Smith says the program helps pay back to those who donate by contributing to the economic growth in the area.
