Prior to his 36 year teaching career at MCC, Dr. Warren taught 6 years at the University of Pikeville and 2 years at Asbury University.

Graduation is always an exciting time for students and the college. We have another outstanding graduating class. Many of our graduates have secured high wage jobs already or have made plans to transfer to a four-year college or university, shared Dr. Jay Parrent, Interim Chief Academic Officer. It is anticipated that 136 graduates will participate in the May 6th ceremonies.

The community is invited to attend the graduation ceremonies and celebrate the accomplishments of our students.
