Help Start a New Chapter in the Life of a Student

Your gift to the Annual Fund for Monroe Community College helps write so many of the MCC success stories we hear about every day. Stories you help create--like that of MCC student Cyrene Wallace.

Cyrene is the first in her family to attend college. Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, she opened a new chapter in her life by working on her degree in liberal arts with an emphasis on science, technology, engineering and math. Cyrene plans to continue her education at a four-year college and go on to earn a master's degree so she can work in a field related to genetics or evolutionary biology. These ambitious goals will make her very valuable to any medical center in Rochester or beyond.

Like so many students, however, Cyrene struggled to afford the expense of college even with MCC's reasonable tuition. After applying for scholarships through Scholarships Online, she was ecstatic when she learned she was selected to receive a scholarship. "I am so very blessed that you selected me to gain a wonderful opportunity," Cyrene said. "This gives me faith that I can go far when I really put hard work forward, and I will continue to do so."

Gifts from faculty and staff donors made a new chapter possible for Cyrene and for hundreds of other scholarship recipients at MCC. We hope that you will consider making a gift, making a pledge, arranging for payroll deduction, using the attached form or calling x3680 today!
