When applying for the honor, MCTC noted its transformational culture where employees and students alike can experience a sense of belonging while being empowered to reach their greatest potential. The recent additions of more flexible working schedules as well as regular employee recognition efforts were also discussed in pursuit of the award.   

"MCTC is such a special place,” states Dr. Laura McCullough, MCTC President and CEO. “We are incredibly proud of our team, the work they do, and their commitment to our students, our institution and the communities we serve.”

MCTC Director of Human Resources, Amanda Conley noted that this was the first time the college has applied for this recognition. “We were thrilled when we learned we had made the list,” says Conley. “We want to thank everyone on Team MCTC for fully supporting the Best Places initiative.
