Business owner Tim Allred contributes to Meridian Community College's tuition guarantee program because he said he believes MCC deserves strong local support from area leaders.
The tuition guarantee program is funded by the MCC Foundation. The program pays all tuition for any student who graduated from high school in Lauderdale County within the year that they enrolled at MCC.
Even though Allred didn't attend MCC, he still serves on MCC's Construction Trades Advisory Board. Allread, owner of Heritage Building Corp., said the program helps ensure the area will have skilled builders.
Allred was among several contributors to the tuition guarantee program the MCC Foundation honored Wednesday at the annual President's Roundtable Luncheon.
MCC President Scott Elliott was out of town and did not attend the luncheon.
Kathy Brookshire, director of the MCC Foundation, said she organizes the luncheon each year to thank those who make it possible for more than 2,000 Meridian and Lauderdale County students to attend MCC.
The luncheon's keynote speaker was George Bryan, a West Point native and retired chief executive officer and senior vice president of Bryan Foods now known as the Sara Lee Corp.
Bryan also recently opened the Old Waverly golf course, home of the 1999 U.S. Women's Open in West Point.
Bryan, who was traveling with his chocolate Labrador retriever, Maddie, said it was good to be in Meridian again. He took the opportunity to tout his son Shane's new line of grilling sauce and seasoning salt 2 Brothers.
Also attending the luncheon was sophomore Kyle Naylor who is attending MCC on the tuition guarantee program. He thanked the program's sponsors for helping him with his education.
