I am so excited about the potential this project holds for helping ICC better reach non-traditional students and students of color. The Beyond the Classroom Capital Campaign will make ICC even more welcoming, safe, and supportive.
The impact will be long-lasting: a community of tomorrow's leaders who embrace excellence, equality and compassion.
I grew up on the ICC campus as a ball boy for my dad who was a teacher and coach. This project matters to me because ICC has had a huge impact on who I have become as a person. I truly believe that ICC is the best place to start.
The McMahon Student Center will help to create a student experience that is comparable to many 4-year college experiences and will hopefully bring more community members onto campus to connect with the school and students.
I firmly believe education is the most likely way to improve our area's standard of living. ICC is already an important asset for this area, and The McMahon Student Center will greatly enhance the student experience, providing a much stronger sense of community. As these students transition into their working careers, this will undoubtedly influence many graduates to stay in the region.
As ICC grows, so does the likelihood that an employer finds the Itasca area attractive, knowing there is a pipeline of talented, well-educated employees.
