Give the Gift of Time!

“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

The American culture of volunteering continues to grow. According to Corporation for National & Community Service, one in four adults volunteer their time to community organizations across the nation. Do you have time to spare?

Diverse skill sets provided by business professionals, parents, retirees and students help support the College’s operations and assist the Foundation in hosting a variety of events and programs throughout the year, including campus specific events, tutoring, performing arts series, art gallery exhibits, annual golf and fishing tournaments and more!
