Salute to Excellence

Save the date of November 14, 2024 for the 33rd Annual Salute to Excellence!

The Monroe Community College Foundation’s 32nd Annual Salute to Excellence was held on December 6 at the Floreano Convention Center and was the stage for an inspirational and celebratory evening.  Friends, family, members of the college community, donors, business and community leaders gathered together to celebrate our alumni and philanthropy having an impact at Monroe Community College. The Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation was recognized with the Salute to Excellence. The inspiring stories of Angelica Perez-Delgado ’97, Joseph M. Rizzo ’79, Patricia Flynn Soltys ’72 and Alyssa S. Whitfield ’90 were shared during their induction into the MCC Alumni Hall of Fame. As if that were not enough, we celebrated the MCC Foundation’s 40th anniversary with Honorary Chairs Erin and Truman Tolefree as well as our Committee Co-chair Robert J. Duffy ’75.
