The Salute to Excellence award recognizes philanthropists, as well as business and community leaders, who have contributed to our community and to success of MCC.

Funds raised at this annual event support student scholarships, faculty grants and program innovation at MCC.

Highlights of the program include the induction of four MCC alumni into the MCC Alumni Hall of Fame. CNN Special Investigations Correspondent Soledad O’Brien is the keynote speaker.

An honored Rochester tradition since 1989, the Salute to Excellence award (pictured below) is a Steuben crystal star, in the shape of the MCC Foundation’s logo. Its design reflects the shining example of the recipient’s personal commitment and generosity to public higher education and the Greater Rochester community.
