Lenore Croudy gives back to “Lifetime Friends” at MCC

FLINT — Mott Community College Trustee Chair Lenore Croudy is giving back to a lot of “lifetime friends” with the announcement of an endowment bearing her name.

More than $17,000 was raised at a birthday tribute honoring Croudy in March, establishing seed money to provide years of financial assistance primarily for MCC’s Fine Arts program, but also to be shared with the Health Sciences, Humanities, Technology, Business, Science/ Mathematics and Social Sciences Divisions at MCC.

“Lenore Croudy has an active legacy of advocacy,” said Lennetta Coney, president of the Foundation for Mott Community College. “She is a proven advocate for helping students succeed, for pushing Mott Community College forward and speaking on behalf of youth everywhere in this community.”

It is Croudy’s “Lifetime Friends” — an endearing term she is known to use for nearly everyone she meets — who provided the funds in honor of the retired educator for Flint Community Schools. The March event gathered all her friends together in one room to celebrate her life and legacy.

Croudy has served as an MCC Board of Trustees member for more than 20 years. She was elected to her fifth, six-year term on the Board of Trustees in May. Serving the board in a variety of offices, she has been its chairperson since 1995.
