The MCC Foundation Men of Color Success Initiative

Only 27% of men of color enrolled at McLennan Community College come back to college the following year. To combat that alarming statistic, the MCC Foundation brought the Men of Color Success Initiative to campus. Program Coordinator Dr. Frank Graves and MCC Foundation Executive Director Kim Patterson join Randy in the studio to talk about the program.

About the nonprofit:

 The MCC Foundation Men of Color Success Initiative is designed to increase retention and completion rates among men of color and increase the campus’ awareness of issues with diversity and equality.

About Charity Champions

Charity Champions are nonprofit organizations chosen by TFNB Your Bank For Life employees after being nominated by the community. Winners receive an awareness marketing campaign and leadership training at no charge to the nonprofit.

The awareness campaign begins with a radio interview by the voice of the Baylor Bears, John Morris, and an on-field presentation at McLane Stadium in front of thousands of Central Texans during a Baylor Football game. It continues with recognition at Baylor Basketball games and a feature on the Charity Champions Podcast.

After football season ends, 360 Solutions brings Charity Champions winners together for world-class leadership development training during the first and second quarters of every year.
