"We believe Michigan Reconnect will not only help individuals and families pursue their dreams, but it will also help build a strong economy that requires a talented and modern workforce to compete for the jobs of the future," says Dr. Adrien L. Bennings, president of KCC. "KCC has a long history of providing affordable workforce training and transferrable degrees in our service area and the Michigan Reconnect program fits perfectly with our mission as a community college."
