NC Volunteer Fireman's Association supports MCC
A regional chapter of the NC Volunteer Fireman's Association met on the campus of MCC on June 25. Immediately following their meeting, the group's president, Mr. William Harkley, and other member's of the organization, presented MCC's Director of Basic Skills, Jeri Griffin, with a generous gift of $1,200. The money will be used to pay for GED testing fees which, over the past year, have increased from $35 to $104, making it impossible for many to obtain their high-school equivalency credential.
