Dr. DeRionne Pollard, president of Montgomery College, delivered her third annual State of the College address as a virtual conversation on Wednesday, April 9, 2014. The College community had the opportunity to watch the address in person at the Gudelsky Institute for Technical Education, on the web, or on Montgomery College Television - channel 10.

Entitled “What MC Students Need,” the State of the College took a close look at new initiatives designed to support students, as well as the work that must still be done to ensure students succeed.

Dr. Pollard concluded her speech with the following words: "Each and every member of our community has value, and it is our responsibility as the community’s college to empower them and enrich the county around us. The State of our College is strong and only growing stronger."
