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 wishes to thank First Midwest Bank, Prairie Community Bank and Hammortree Financial Services for their sponsorship of the Education to Empowerment Mentoring Event.
The Education to Empowerment committee hosted a Mentoring Event on March 13, 2014 at Joe’s Place in Marengo. The event focused on the mentoring aspect of Education to Empowerment.
A panel of committee members discussed their mentoring experiences. Marcy Piekos directed the questions and answer portion of the program.
The Education to Empowerment Committee will be hosting their next event in July. The scholarship for Education to Empowerment scholarship is currently posted on the Foundation web site and the scholarship recipients will be introduced to the committee at the July Event.
