“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.”
- Courtney Bleier, 2022 MCC graduate and single parent of a 3-year-old son
