Following are Rep. Hultgren’s prepared remarks:

I rise today to congratulate McHenry County College on their 50 years of service to our community and state.

Since April 1967, MCC administration, faculty, staff and trustees have demonstrated unparalleled commitment to their students through quality degree and certificate programs.

Through the College, the community is provided a diverse and relevant array of enrichment and lifelong learning opportunities—everything from advanced manufacturing, engineering and healthcare to fine arts, the humanities, continuing education and training, and everything in between.

I commend the College, led by President Dr. Clint Gabbard, for its continued focus on student success, innovation, and contribution towards the community’s economic development.

True to its goal of student success, the College has been ranked among the top 150 community colleges in the nation and scores fourth place in the state for student success rates and affordability.

From visiting and hosting numerous congressional events at MCC, I am always impressed by the extraordinary efforts and commitment of McHenry County College faculty and staff.

Congratulations McHenry County College on your 50th Anniversary.
