Hultgren wishes McHenry County College a happy 50th
Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) recently recognized the 50th anniversary of McHenry County College on the House floor, commending the school for the extraordinary services it offers to area students.
“Through the college, the community is provided a diverse and relevant array of enrichment and lifelong learning opportunities – everything from advanced manufacturing, engineering and healthcare to fine arts, the humanities, continuing education and training, and everything in between,” Hultgren said in a release.
Hultgren noted that the school has provided these services since 1967, and that administration, faculty, staff and trustees through the years have remained committed to providing exceptional educations to their students. He specifically commended President Clint Gabbard for continuing that tradition and maintaining the school’s efforts to promote economic development in the area.
“True to its goal of student success, the college has been ranked among the top 150 community colleges in the nation and scores fourth place in the state for student success rates and affordability,” Hultgren said in the release. “From visiting and hosting numerous congressional events at MCC, I am always impressed by the extraordinary efforts and commitment of McHenry County College faculty and staff. Congratulations McHenry County College on your 50th anniversary.”
