Monroe Community College has long been recognized for its dedicated and remarkable faculty. Recently, alumnus William (Bill) Thomas ’86 was inspired to acknowledge the impact of Dr. David L. Pogue, professor emeritus in MCC’s Department of Law and Criminal Justice. Bill credits Dr. Pogue’s mentoring for changing his trajectory and guiding him down a pathway toward a career as an attorney, enabling him to create this scholarship in his honor.

The David L. Pogue Scholarship honors his dedication to preparing students for successful careers in the legal profession. It will support students who come to MCC for a solid foundation and who strive to reach higher and higher in academic and professional achievement. Bill says, “It gives me great pride and satisfaction to know this scholarship will always be attached to (Dr. Pogue’s) name and that students will continue to benefit from what you have done well into the future.

Is there a current or former MCC faculty or staff member who helped transform your life? Consider honoring them with a gift to the MCC Foundation. For more information about creating a named scholarship, call the MCC Foundation at 585.685.6020 or email
