Miami Dade College (MDC) celebrates I AM MDC DAY (www.mdc.edu/iammdc/), an annual day of giving and pride honoring the College’s rich history and unparalleled impact on the community, Wednesday, Sept. 6.
Fifty-seven years ago on Sept. 6 1960, Miami Dade College opened the door to the American Dream. Today, more than two million alumni can say “I AM MDC” because MDC afforded them the opportunity to pursue a college education – the ticket to a better future – that for many was otherwise out of reach.
The 24-hour celebration will highlight the achievements of MDC alumni, students, staff, and faculty; inspire pride; and increase awareness of the College’s profound educational, economic and cultural significance to South Florida and beyond.
The event will focus on engaging the MDC community to post stories, tweets, share images and videos about their alma mater and what I AM MDC means to them, on social media and using #iammdc. Students, faculty and staff will commemorate the history of the College with a kickoff at 10 a.m. at the Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami, followed by events at each of the school’s nine campuses throughout Miami-Dade County all day long.
For 24 hours on Sept. 6, the College will encourage members of the community whose lives have been touched by MDC to make a gift to deserving students.Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
