Education to Empowerment
Education to Empowerment is an exciting new women’s scholarship program presented by the Friends of MCC Foundation. This unique and innovative new program will provide financial support and ongoing mentorship for female McHenry County College students completing their final year at MCC and continuing onto a four-year college or university toward an advanced degree.
The Friends of McHenry County College Foundation wish to thank Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, First Midwest Bank, Prairie Community Bank, Steffan's Jewelers, Hammortree Financial Services and Morgan Stanley-Flint Creek Group for their sponsorship of Education to Empowerment.
The Education to Empowerment Committee hosted an event at the Gardens of Woodstock on July 17, 2014. The guests enjoyed a wine tasting provided by Brian Noshay of Materra Wines and appetizers. A small reception was held in the banquet room where the Education to Empowerment Executive Committee welcomed our guests and introduced our three fall 2014 scholarship recipients and congratulated our three 2013 scholarship recipients as they continue their education at a four year university.
