MCC to host TeamMates Mentoring, Dr. Tom Osborne April 4


OMAHA, Neb. — Metropolitan Community College will host TeamMates Mentoring Program on Tuesday, April 4, 9-10 a.m. at the Institute for the Culinary Arts on the College’s Fort Omaha Campus, 32nd Street and Sorensen Parkway. Dr. Tom Osborne will be present to address mentors, mentees and prospective mentees.


The event is part of a partnership between the College and TeamMates. Many MCC faculty and staff volunteer their time as mentors in addition to the College supporting student aspirations with six full-tuition scholarships.


“As a TeamMates mentor and an MCC Employee, I have experienced the impact both organizations have on our community,” said Tracy McTavish-Mlady, institutional effectiveness coordinator at MCC. “The partnership is a natural fit and the MCC scholarships are a wonderful way to give young people support.”


Founded by Tom and Nancy Osborne, TeamMates works to positively impact youth and encourage them to reach their full potential. TeamMates has more than 7,500 youth in more than 100 communities across Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas and Wyoming.
