Why attend a Community College?

Over 50% of MSHS students indicate they will begin their post-secondary education at a Community College.  I've uploaded a copy of the powerpoint presentation I gave in Senior English which spoke of the many benefits the Community College System offers - from certificate programs to transfer degrees.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
