The Real Deal

Message from the President

Dr. Ronald L. Rhames

On behalf of Midlands Technical College, I would like to thank you for your generosity during MTC Gives, our first-ever day of giving. With your help, we raised more than $17,000 in just one-day! Your support directly impacts MTC students, as it helps them achieve their dreams – dreams like those of Air Force Veteran David Peacock who needed a new mission after being wounded while bravely serving his country. I encourage you to read David’s story in this newsletter, as well as visit our website to be inspired by the stories of many more MTC students. Your financial support helps ensure our students’ success, and we sincerely thank you for giving to MTC so we can continue to create a winning environment for students now and in the future.
