“Working full time, being a single mom and going to school full time, I have taken advantage of a lot of assistance that my professors and the teachers at the child care center have given me. Their support really took a huge weight off my shoulders. The scholarships made a big difference. Not only did it help me financially, it also encouraged me to continue to be successful in school.”

Notable Tribunes

Todd Baxter ’10,
Monroe County Sheriff’s Office

Todd Baxter always seeks opportunities to make the community a better place. After serving in the Army right out of high school, he returned to Rochester to begin his civilian career. After completing courses at MCC, he was hired by the Rochester Police Department – the start of a law enforcement career spanning 35 years.

An opportunity to bring about positive change for military veterans eventually led him to the Veterans Outreach Center, where as executive director he oversaw efforts to open a home for female veterans in need. Currently the Monroe County Sheriff, he is recipient of multiple awards recognizing his contributions to the community and country, including inspiring future first responders as an instructor. Todd holds an associate degree in criminal justice from MCC as well as bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Roberts Wesleyan University.

Todd is among MCC alumni who have excelled professionally and made a positive impact on the community and the college. Meet other distinguished alumni.
