When: Wednesday, May 8, 6 p.m.

Where: Room 120 inside the Industrial Training Center at the College’s South Omaha Campus, 2909 Edward Babe Gomez Ave.

Background: Scholarship providers include Baxter Auto, Enterprise Properties, NMC Cat and Lozier Corporation. The event will feature a welcome from MCC president Randy Schmailzl and a keynote address from Sarah Moylan, senior director of Talent and Development with the Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
