Reducing barriers and challenges

“Establishing a Family Life Center in Mrs. Croudy’s name honors her legacy to the fullest, by helping to reduce barriers and challenges that impede our students’ success.”

Dr. Beverly Walker-Griffea MCC President

Lenore Croudy was an educator in the Flint Community Schools for more than 40 years,and served as President of the Congress of Flint School Administrators. She was first elected to the MCC Board in 1987 and was appointed Board Chair in 1995. During her tenure as Chair, she worked with six college presidents, helping lead MCC through periods of financial difficulty to record enrollment levels, and a designation by the Aspen Institute as one of the 10 best community colleges in the nation. Mrs Croudy told anyone who would listen that “MCC was the best college in the city, state, nation and beyond.” Lenore Croudy passed away January 19, 2017.
