Message from President Randy

President Randy VanWagoner

With a vision statement of "transforming lives through learning," MVCC is a place filled with faculty and staff who work so hard to support students in their journey toward a better future for themselves. The intersection of the resilience, creativity, and kindness of the faculty and staff and the courage, hopes, and potential of the students is why MVCC is such a special place to me.

Message from Deanna

Deanna Ferro-Aurience

I have the incredible opportunity to be the Executive Director of the very Foundation that awarded me a presidential scholarship to attend MVCC many years ago. I'm thankful for a career that allows me to help remove financial barriers to education, and the ability to ensure scholarships like the one I received, remain available to students.

Message from Courtney

Courtney Taurisano-Sprague

Both of my parents are MVCC alumni, and my daughter is a student. This college helps generations of students find their pathway to success; it helped me find mine.

Message from Katie

Katie Voce

My mom always told me that education is something no one can ever take away from you. I believe in the power an MVCC education provides to thousands of students each year, and I leave each night feeling grateful that my work may have encouraged someone to change their life for the better.

Message from Angela


As an alumna of MVCC, I have wonderful memories from my time as a student here and am very grateful for the opportunities the college has provided me. In my career it is so rewarding to see students fulfill their educational and career goals at MVCC, and to be able to help students overcome financial barriers through my work at the Foundation.
