MCC President Anne Kress released a statement Saturday, saying the faculty is excited that the school's efforts to build industry partnerships as well as its workforce education program are getting this kind of attention.

She went on to say in part: "We can't wait for the Vice President and Dr. Biden to meet our inspiring students and learn more about how their lives are transformed--and our community strengthened-- by our outstanding faculty and staff and by the connection between MCC's programs and regional economic development."
