Metropolitan Community College Celebrates 50th Anniversary with Gala
Metropolitan Community College is celebrating 50 years of providing exceptional community education. In honor of this milestone, MCC invites friends, alumni and supporters to join us at the 50th Anniversary Gala on March 9.
Since its inception in 1974, Metropolitan Community College has been a cornerstone of academic excellence, fostering a vibrant and diverse community of learners, educators and innovators. Over the past five decades, MCC has played a pivotal role in shaping the futures of countless individuals, contributing to the educational and economic growth of the region.
“As we celebrate our 50th year, Metropolitan Community College has an opportunity to reflect on what this institution means for those we serve,” said Randy Schmailzl, MCC president. “Although we have grown remarkably and the tools of our trade have changed greatly over the years, our mission of providing affordable, accessible and relevant education remains constant. The next 50 years will surely bring similar changes. It is good to know MCC will be there, helping our students and communities adapt and grow together.”
To commemorate this significant achievement, MCC is hosting a 50th Anniversary Gala on March 9 at the MCC Fort Omaha Campus. The evening promises to be a memorable affair, featuring a dinner, entertainment, live and silent auctions and a walk down memory lane to reflect on the incredible journey of MCC over the last 50 years.
Individuals interested in attending the 50th Anniversary Gala can go to purchase tickets, donate or participate in the silent auction. The attire for this event is semi-formal, and tickets start at $150. For sponsorship opportunities or more information, please contact the MCC Foundation at 531-MCC-2346.
