“Community”

As I make my way about the community, visiting high schools and interacting with high school students, I have come to learn what the word “community” means. I realized that this weekend when I asked a couple of high school students where they planned on going to college. The answer was “community.”
“Community” means Monroe County Community College (MCCC). I wonder how many of us were aware of that MCCC moniker. I see that reference as a good thing. We are the community college, and the only college in the county. In some communities/counties, the word “community” would be nebulous, at best. The depth of our programs and offerings are what determine our quality. We make the community what it is when it comes to education. Without Monroe County Community College, there would be no higher education options in this county, which is our community.
