MCC HOSTING OPEN HOUSE FOR PLUS 50 ADULT STUDENTS

Madisonville Community College (MCC) will host an Open House for adult students as a part of the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) Plus 50 Encore Completion Program. The program is a national effort to train 10,000 baby boomers over the next two years for new jobs in health care, education and social services, while helping them complete certificates or degrees.

MCC s Open House will be held on Thursday, April 2, from 11 am to 1 p.m. at the college s North Campus (2000 College Drive, Madisonville) in room 225 of the John H. Gray building. Prospective students will have the opportunity to meet with professors in the fields of human services and medical information technology, in addition to having access to the college s admissions services and career planning services.

Madisonville Community College is excited to be a part of the AACC Plus 50 Encore Completion program. Adults returning to upgrade skills and pursue new career pathways have been an important part of our college s mission for many years. stated MCC Chief Student Affairs Officer Dr. Jay Parrent.

The Plus 50 Encore Completion Program is funded with a $3.2-million grant to AACC provided by Deerbrook Charitable Trust. The Plus 50 Encore Completion program supports AACC s work to increase the number of students who finish degrees, certificates, and other credentials. In April 2010, AACC committed alongside other higher education organizations to promote the development and implementation of policies, practices and institutional cultures that will produce 50 percent more students with high quality degrees and certificates by 2020.
