Monroe County Community College head honored at retirement


A community tribute in honor of retiring Monroe County Community College President David Nixon is 6 to 9 p.m. Friday in the La-Z-Boy Center Atrium on the main college campus.

Mr. Nixon is finishing his 10th year as college president on July 31. He led the college through a period of construction, record enrollments, growing endowments, new scholarships, and new programs. The college also dealt with shrinking resources and Michigan’s longest recession.
