THE BERNICE AND GEORGE J. COURY MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP

To honor the memory of Bernice and George J. Coury, who understood the importance of a college education. George had a very robust life: was a civil worker in the NAVY, an instrument maker, a valuable engineer. Both Bernice and George were in the peace corps and champion square dancers. They deeply understood first-hand, the financial challenges that students often face and established this scholarship to help satisfy the unmet financial needs of deserving MCC students in a 2 plus 2 program.
