The MACC Hannibal Area Higher Education Center is featured on the cover of the new 2010 AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory serving the Hannibal area. The MACC currently has over 300 students enrolled for fall semester, which is a 14 percent increase over fall 2008.
More than 27,000 copies of the AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory have been produced for distribution this year. Delivery begins Feb. 11 and continues for about four weeks. The directory also will be available to new residents and businesses throughout the year.
“We are pleased the MACC Hannibal Area Higher Education Center is featured on the cover of our new AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory for this area,” said Craig Felzein, AT&T regional director external affairs. “We always strive to make our directory covers special on the outside, and tailor the contents inside our print directories and the online search options to best serve the needs of our communities. You can count on the AT&T Real Yellow Pages as your complete source of local information.”
Felzein added AT&T is pleased it was able to work with state and local elected officials to convert the former AT&T call center on 141 Communications Drive into space the college could use to help further the education of Hannibal-area students.
MACC hopes to remain in the building for the next couple of years while the permanent location is being constructed. MACC realizes the need for affordable, quality education is great in the region and looks forward to its future expansion.
"We are thrilled to see the MACC Hannibal Area Higher Education Center featured on the cover of the AT&T Real Yellow Pages directory," said Dr. Evelyn Jorgenson, MACC president. "We are very excited about this facility and the opportunities it provides to further the education of students in and around Hannibal."
State Senator Wes Shoemyer has worked tirelessly promoting funding allocations for MACC’s Hannibal construction project, and he sees the MACC Hannibal Higher Education Center as a step in the right direction for the Hannibal Area.
"Higher Education is critical for Missouri as a state, and I will do whatever I can to make it a priority,” said Shoemyer. “The expansion of the Moberly Area Community College in Hannibal is a very positive development, and I am grateful to everyone who made it possible. I am committed to working with the state of Missouri and Affordable Community Education to make Moberly Community College's satellite campus have a permanent home here in Hannibal
