    On Thursday, April 12, a farewell gala will be held in honor of Montgomery College’s recently retired president, Dr. Charlene Nunley. Proceeds from the event will go to the Montgomery College Foundation, to help establish an endowment fund in Dr. Nunley’s name that will provide lasting scholarships for MC students. The gala will be held at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

    As president, Dr. Nunley helped to launch Montgomery College into the top 10 community colleges nationally, in private fundraising. She led the College during a decade of continuous enrollment growth and secured State and County support and funding for the ongoing expansion of the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. She also secured additional land and public support for the development of a new bioscience education center and science/technology business park on the Germantown Campus, and began the planning for a new science center and other facilities on the Rockville Campus.

    In 2005, Dr. Nunley was named to the U.S. Secretary of Education’s Commission on the Future of Higher Education, serving as one of only 19 education, business, and government leaders appointed to the national commission.
