Montgomery College Board of Trustees Names Germantown Campus Building After Dr. Pollard

Last night, at its June meeting, the Montgomery College Board of Trustees unanimously approved a resolution to name the Student Affairs and Science Building at the Germantown Campus as the Dr. DeRionne P. Pollard Student Affairs and Science Building. The board took this action in recognition of Dr. Pollard’s contributions to significantly enrich students’ educational opportunities and experiences at Montgomery College.

The Board’s naming of the building came as a complete surprise to Dr. Pollard during the meeting. She expressed her deep gratitude for this honor, especially so, she said, because of her commitment to advancing STEM education and her ardent devotion to students. Last night’s board meeting was the last of the fiscal year and the last for Dr. Pollard before starting her new position as president at Nevada State College. 

Board Chair Mike Knapp noted that now all three campuses will have a building named after a College president. The new building name takes effect immediately. Plans for a building naming ceremony will be announced later this year. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Pollard for this recognition of her leadership and service at MC.
