The Real Deal

Message from the President

Dr. Ronald L. Rhames

From the moment they first step on campus, to the moment they return to campus for their 50-year reunion, MTC students are on a lifelong journey of personal and educational triumphs. Moments are made here at MTC, and I’m happy to share many of those moments each month in this newsletter. In this edition, I welcome you to read how employers will reap the benefits of hiring our well- prepared graduates who are exceeding national averages, and I invite you to learn about the adjunct faculty who are using their real-word experience to train our students for fulfilling critical roles in the workforce.
