Each Spring, The Heroes of Education Dinner honors those who have a proven personal and professional commitment to supporting students and educational opportunities. Sponsored by the Maricopa Community Colleges and the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation since 2006, these events have raised over $1.5 million in scholarships for Maricopa Community Colleges students. Also recognized are 10 College Heroes, one from each of the Maricopa Community Colleges, representing individuals, organizations or companies who have distinguished themselves by providing exceptional support and/or service to one of the Colleges.

Congratulations to our 2019 Hero of Education
