Student Support Services TRiO Program celebrated their students at the 16th Annual TRiO Awards Ceremony on May 16, 2017. The theme of the ceremony was "Dean's List" since all of the graduates in attendance had been on the Dean's List at some point during their time at MC. The keynote speaker was Dr. Tonya Mason, Collegewide Dean of Student Success and Rockville Student Affairs. Dean Mason congratulated students on their accomplishments and motivated them to continue their success in their future endeavors. Students were honored to have met Dr. Mason, which made their experience of being on the Dean's List even more meaningful.

Please see attachment for highlights of the event.
