Private support for health care

On July 29, I had the pleasure of joining TMCC President Maria Sheehan as the college renamed the nursing school the Maxine S. Jacobs Nursing Program.  Herb Jacobs, Maxine's husband, and Carl Whittaker, her son-in-law, dedicated the program in honor of a $500,000 donation to the college. The gift will pay the tuition of 50 second-year nursing students and be used to upgrade teaching equipment and programs. The Board accepted the gift at its June meeting.
