Alumni Association - Moberly Area Community College

MACC Alumni Association

 

The Moberly Area Community College Alumni Association/Foundation was officially established in the late 1970's in order to provide a base for fundraising for the Academic Fine Arts Wing. After this successful campaign, which raised 2.5 million for the three-story addition to the Main Building, the Foundation and the Alumni Association remained as one entity for several years. Then as it grew, the two were separated, with the Foundation becoming the main fundraising arm of the College, and the Alumni Association providing the base for this activity by keeping in touch with former graduates.

 

MACC has one of the most active two-year college alumni groups in Missouri, giving students the opportunity to stay connected with MACC for a lifetime. Members pay dues of $20 a year for a single membership, and $30 for a couple, and there are many couples who are both MACC alums.

 

Alumni records hold approximately 7000 names and addresses of alums dating back as far as the 1930's. Each year’s grads are added to these records, and addresses and information are kept as current as possible.

 

Since the last two years of high school, (lower level), were housed at the College until 1968, the Alumni Association also includes some high school class records and these class members are some of the College’s most staunch supporters.

 

Each spring the Alumni Association gives four $200 scholarships to area high school students who plan to attend MACC in the fall. These scholarships must be used in the College bookstore. They are renewable for three additional semesters if criteria are met. Dues help pay for these scholarships and for the bi-annual alumni magazine.
