TUCUMCARI, N.M. (KAMR/KCIT) — Officials at Mesalands Community College (MCC) have announced that the Education Credit Management Corporation (ECMC) has awarded an additional $5,000 to students as emergency aid for their students.
The emergency aid will benefit students in financial emergencies, such as vehicle maintenance, transportation needs, or other unforeseen expenses that may hinder the success of their colleges, according to an MCC press release. The purpose is that.
“A minor emergency can negatively impact a student’s academic or professional success. Our food pantry and emergency services can make a big difference in the future of our students. Our funding gives our students every opportunity to succeed,” said Dr. Greg Bush, president.
MCC has made student success its top priority and said the emergency fund could provide students with the resources they need to overcome academic barriers.
