Who is this year's Scholarship Honoree?

This year’s FA "Follow Your Dream" Scholarship honoree is Taine Vinci!  Taine dedicated four decades of her life to working at MCC and made a profound impact throughout the college. She worked in a number of offices in the Student Services division, including Counseling, Advising, Veteran Services, and Records & Registration. She was recognized and respected by her colleagues for her exceptional dedication to our students, but also to serving her fellow employees. Taine served as the Vice president for the FA for over 10 years and served under three different FA presidents. She was a tireless advocate for professional staff and always ensured that the professional staff perspective was considered in every FA decision. She was a mentor and friend to many employees at MCC, including me, and she was widely known for her institutional knowledge and insight. I believe Taine is the epitome of who we had in mind when we designed the scholarship  - she truly was the best of MCC!
