MCC Honors 2012 Super Sunday Hall of Fame Alumni

Madisonville Community College (MCC) is proud to honor Doug Davis and Grace Milan Evans as the newest members of the Super Sunday Hall of Fame.

Super Sunday is an annual Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) statewide initiative intended to increase the college-going rate of students of color. As part of this initiative, a Super Sunday Hall of Fame has been established, highlighting outstanding African-American alumni.

Doug Davis graduated from Madisonville Community College with an Associate in Arts degree and is continuing his education at Murray State University in pursuit of a degree in Social Work. Just as higher education transformed Doug s life, he hopes to make a difference in other people lives. Doug is employed with ResCare and Pennyroyal Mental Health Center where he mentors children and adults. He also works part-time at UPS.

Christ has transformed my life and blessed me with a great experience at Madisonville Community College. Here I have furthered my education, strengthened my mind, and realized that the sky is the limit," said Davis.

Grace Milan Evans graduated from Madisonville Community College with an Associate in Arts degree and continued her education at Western Kentucky University where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. Grace is currently employed at Longest Elementary School as a second grade teacher. This is her eleventh year teaching.

"Choosing to attend a community college has been on the best decisions I've ever made," said Evans.

Madisonville Community College will sponsor Super Sunday on February 12, 2012 beginning at 2 p.m. at the Word of Faith Christian Center (located at 1400 Kingsway Drive in Madisonville, KY) and at the First Missionary Baptist Church (located at 110 Evans Street in Greenville, KY). On this day, MCC and each of the other 15 KCTCS colleges and System Office will partner with churches in their communities to host information fairs for prospective college students and their families.

Super Sunday will be an excellent opportunity for students to learn that college is affordable and accessible at MCC. We offer a number of outstanding academic programs that will prepare students for not just jobs but the careers of the next century. We look forward to big crowds at Word of Faith Christian Center and at First Missionary Baptist Church. There will be admissions and financial aid staff available to help in any way possible, stated Dr. Judith L. Rhoads, President of Madisonville Community College.

In the future, the Super Sunday event will be expanded to target students from other racial and ethnic groups, such as the emerging Latino population, as well as additional church partners.

For most Kentuckians, higher education begins at one of the state s 16 community and technical colleges. It is a vital part of the KCTCS mission to ensure the state s diverse populations receive every opportunity to obtain a college education. KCTCS s Super Sunday is modeled after a highly successful program that California State University has hosted every year since 2005.
