The administration of Maysville Community and Technical College (MCTC) marked achievements, promotions and years of service by its faculty and staff during their most recent Friday Forum held on August 27.  

This ceremony traditionally occurs during the college’s Fall convocation but was held remotely this year due to the COVID pandemic. 

“The pandemic kept us from coming together physically for this recognition, but that does not make these achievements any less significant,” says Interim President Russ Ward. “The team at MCTC has time and again shown its resiliency and I’m glad we were able to celebrate that once again.”
