Meridian Community College Tuesday kicked off its fundraiser for the Tuition Guarantee Program.
The program allows high school graduates in Lauderdale County to attend MCC tuition for four semesters.
The MCC Foundation and its supporters are picking up the tab.
The kickoff, with "The Beatles" was designed to fire up the board as it goes about raising the money.
Ii feel like there are students that may not go to college because of financial barriers," said Kathy Brookshire, director of MCC institutional advancement. "We take those barriers away. We provide them with the money to go to college."
Students must maintain at least a C average.
The Tuition Guarantee campaign concludes at the end of March.
