Some nine local and area community resource agencies and organizations participated sharing with students about their offerings and programs. Many students leave college because of lack of funding, childcare, resources or transportation, said Shaquita Hopson, MCC navigator, and MCC’s College Resource Fair was one way to inform students of the opportunities “that could help our students remain in college and help them accomplish their academic goals.”
