Thank you, Mr. Bloch
The Metropolitan Community College family and MCC Foundation join the rest of Kansas
City in mourning the loss of Henry W. Bloch, a longtime friend of the College. He
is the namesake of the Henry W. Bloch Scholars program, which since 2000 has provided
the opportunity for students to earn degrees from both MCC and UMKC. MCC-Penn Valley’s
Student Success Center, opened in 2017, was made possible in part by the Marion and
Henry Bloch Family Foundation. Those are just two examples of how Henry and Marion
Bloch, the family foundation and the H & R Block Foundation have been generous in
their financial support of our students and a variety of student programs. We extend
our deepest condolences to the Bloch family.
Each year, the Metropolitan Community College Foundation, with support of numerous
donors, provides students with scholarships to allow them to continue to excel in
their educational goals. These scholarships vary in their fields, the amount and
the requirements to apply for them. However, they are all provided by the generosity
of independent donors, MCC alumni, businesses, organizations and the campus community.
