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.
