Sen. Richardville recognized by MCCC as supporter of the year
LANSING-Sen. Randy Richardville was today recognized by Monroe County Community College with the 2008 MCCC College Supporter of the Year award for his strong support of college programs and projects.
Richardville accepted the award live via teleconference from the state Capitol as it was presented at a business and industry luncheon on the college’s campus.
“As an advocate of the Monroe County Community College, I am honored to receive this award,” said Richardville, R-Monroe. “Community colleges serve an important role in helping educate and prepare area residents for their future roles in life. It’s important that they receive our assistance so that they can continue to provide the community with educational and cultural opportunities.”
While serving in the state House, Richardville helped secure millions in state funding for the construction of the Instructional Center for Business Training and the Performing Arts, now known as the La-Z-Boy Center, Meyer Theater. He has maintained that support by attending college and foundation events and advocating for additional state funding to build a MCCC career technology center in this year’s budget.
“MCCC is a valuable community resource,” Richardville said. “I will continue my efforts to help the college grow and further develop its programs.”
Award winners are nominated by MCCC Board of Trustees members, faculty, or staff.
