2019 Scholarship Gala

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College Foundation held its annual Scholarship Gala on May 20 at the Beau Rivage Resort and Casino in Biloxi.  The annual event raised over $1,000,000 for MGCCC student scholarships.

At the gala, Joseph C. Canizaro was named recipient of the 2019 Hornsby Award.  The Hornsby Award, named after MGCCC alumnae Claire Sekul Hornsby, is given annually to a leader, trailblazer and outstanding supporter of the college.

Funds raised during the gala provide scholarships through the MGCCC Foundation for students who need financial assistance. MGCCC provides many scholarships annually to ensure students are able to reach their educational goals.

Thanks to our 2019 Sponsors
