A Message from President Gossett

From Dr. Gossett, MTCC President: First, last and always, the health of our MTCC family is paramount in our thinking. Your leadership team met at noon yesterday to sketch out a plan for the remainder of the semester. In 24 hours that plan appears to have changed.

Momentarily (4:30 PM Saturday afternoon), the Governor will announce that all public K-12 schools in NC will close effective 3/16. We know that will have a huge impact on us, as he will say that Universities and Community Colleges are to remain open. The System Office is working with Community College Presidents to devise a plan for all students.

Buckle up and stay tuned!
