The Real Deal

Message from the President

Ronald L. Rhames

May is a month of tremendous pride at Midlands Technical College. During our graduation season, we award thousands of degrees, diplomas, and certificates to highly skilled, impeccably trained, well-prepared graduates who are ready to fill the in-demand jobs or continue their higher education journeys. In fact, on average each year, almost 90% of our MTC graduates are employed or continuing their education within six months of graduation. That’s real value, real success, and a real impact our students are making for themselves, their families, and their communities. I hope you enjoy this Graduation Edition as we celebrate our MTC graduates who are truly getting “anywhere from here.”
