Through affordable, quality education, Cecil College plays a vital role in strengthening Cecil County and the region both economically and socially, and I am very excited to expand opportunities for our community,” said Brice.
“Education is a win-win situation, and it’s an exciting time in Maryland’s history. With a new governor, our job as a Maryland community college is to create awareness and highlight all that we have to offer. We must showcase our programs and the importance of community colleges to the betterment of society through affordable tuition and increased access to higher education and workforce training,” said Brice.
