In a rare instance of unity, meteorologists seem to concur that Snowmageddon is shaping up for this weekend in McDowell County. Be sure to follow us now on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for real-time updates on weather-related closings and delays. Or, sign up online for MTCC text messages to immediately be notified of delays and cancellations. (Click on the headline above to sign up!). Alternatively, you may check out the news section on our website or follow the scroll on WLOS or other local television stations for similar weather-related information. Assuming the meteorologists are right, you will want to have your phones and flashlights charged, water bottles filled, and of course, have plenty of milk and bread available for protein-rich milk sandwiches.
The SECU Foundation, a non-profit foundation chartered by the Board of Directors of the North Carolina State Employees' Credit Union, recently awarded "People Helping People Scholarships" to MTCC students Isaac Lawing (l) and Jocelyn Childres (r) to cover the cost of tuition, books and other educational expenses at the college. Each of the scholarships are valued at $5,000 over the course of two years. There are a number of criteria that students have to meet to be considered for the People Helping People program, including "demonstrated leadership, excellence of character, integrity, and community involvement."

MTCC's COVID-19 Protocol will be modified as follows:
Masks or face coverings will continue to be required in all classrooms, labs, and in public settings where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain for the remainder of the semester. However, this version will now allow flexibility for masks to be optional in public settings where social distancing is possible. For example, if an employee visits the restroom or the copier, face coverings are now optional. Or, if a student is studying alone in the library, the face covering is now optional.
