MCRPA Spring 2024 Newsletter

When MCRPA finished the Fall 2023 semester, we thought it was one of our best, with all  the events, our members receiving awards, and 
attending conferences. However, Spring 2024  ends on an even higher note than we expected.

Our semester began on Wednesday, January  31, with our Chats with the Chief featuring Mr. Steve Greenfield, Interim Vice President/Provost of Applied Technologies, Gudelsky Institute for Technical Education, and Workforce Development and Continuing Education. Mr. Greenfield spoke about his career, starting in public schools and working with various programs targeting minority and underserved populations, eventually leading him to Montgomery College.
