Mt. Hood Community College Celebrates Charter Day
Posted: March 26, 2013
Mt. Hood Community College will celebrate Charter Day April 4, noon-1 p.m. as part of First Thursday, MHCC’s music and culture series.
A local Gresham bakery will provide strawberry cupcakes, some of the college’s archives will be on display and the Chuck Redd group will perform jazz. All activities will take place in the Student Union on the Gresham Campus, 26000 S.E. Stark Street. Parking is free on all MHCC campuses, no permit required.
Charter Day recognizes the early days of MHCC. The charter was signed by Tom McCall, an influential governor in Oregon history, in April 1968, two years after the college began enrolling students.
“Students should join us so they can learn about the history of the college and see how far we have progressed,” says Mary Burlingame, from the Student Union. MHCC is the fourth largest community college in Oregon and serves on average 30,000 students per year.
