The generosity of Richard Montalbano and Deborah Cross helped the Montgomery County Community College recently celebrate the naming of its Presidential Reading Room in Blue Bell, writes Justin Heinze for the Hatboro-Horsham Patch.
The generous pledge by the Dresher couple, made as part of the MCCC Foundation’s Futures Rising campaign that raised more than $10 million, was also commemorated with a plaque.
“The college wholeheartedly thanks Rich and Deb for their generous contribution to the Futures Rising campaign and for their commitment to the success of our students,” said MCCC President Dr. Kevin Pollock. “By supporting scholarships, Rich and Deb are making a significant and positive impact on the lives of our students.”
Montalbano is a member of MCCC’s Board of Trustees and chairs the Personnel Committee, while Cross is an Adult Certified Nurse Practitioner at Abington Medical Plaza.
“I have been involved with MCCC for about a dozen years now, and I am captivated by the unique needs of the student body and the nontraditional students we serve,” said Montalbano. “We are thrilled to provide resources for the students of MCCC to bootstrap themselves into a better future.”
