Highlander Alumni & Friends Association


MCC Foundation Board

The Highlander Alumni & Friends Association was established in 2008 as a division of the McLennan Community College Foundation and serves as the principal link between the college and its network of alumni and friends.

A program of the MCC Foundation, the Highlander Alumni & Friends Association holds an annual reunion picnic each summer and issues the Highlander Quarterly.

In addition to the annual picnic and communications through the Highlander Quarterly, the Highlander Alumni & Friends Association hosts the Distinguished Alumni and Distinguished Leader Awards process each year. Nomination forms for both awards are available under “Quick Links and Forms.”
