I know firsthand that Montgomery College is a resource for the family. As a parent with young children, I was grateful for the Youth Programs' wide variety of camps and classes for my girls to be involved in during the summer. In high school, they enrolled in Test Prep when they were in the college selection process. Our oldest is an MC alum and cried to go back to MC once she transferred. And our third is a current student. I even did the prerequisites I needed for my Master's program at Montgomery College! We had wonderful experiences with caring instructors who prepared us for what came next. Montgomery College can be that resource for your family too.

Hometown: Philadelphia PA
Education: BA, MPA
Hobbies: Gardening and Fishing
Favorite Things about MC: The diversity among students and faculty, variety of course offerings, and welcoming environment.
