FA "Follow Your Dream" Scholarship Honors Ray Ruff

The Faculty Association "Follow Your Dream" Scholarship focuses on students who may have obligations outside of the classroom, such as caring for family members/children or working multiple jobs to make ends meet, while continuing to succeed at MCC.  Each year, the scholarship names an honoree who has contributed to the success of the MCC students and college community.  Ray Ruff, Business Administration Department, has been chosen as this year’s honoree.

Ray’s colleagues described him as having the unique ability “to be very kind and understanding while being very professional in finding resolutions to difficult problems. He had great integrity and always acted in the best interests of MCC, the faculty, and students.”  Ray’s many roles in his lengthy and honored career at MCC, which began in 1978, included Dean of Business Division, Department Chair, Accounting Professor, and mentor.
