“I don’t know what word to use to describe how grateful I am for your support, the only thing I can say is thank you. When I started college at MCC I did not know what I wanted to go for, I was looking for something that would cost me less money because I did not have family support and I didn’t want to take out scholarships, but I fell in love with ASL and I decided to become an interpreter no matter how long or how much it cost. Thank you so much and I promise I will put 100% into my schooling.” – Jennifor Moleon ’19, Scholarship Recipient

“Hi, I’m Dilpreet, a 20-year-old girl who recently moved to the United States from India. I am currently studying at MCC and am determined to transfer to a good university next spring to continue my education. I’m so grateful for this scholarship!” – Dilpreet Walia ’19, Scholarship Recipient
