Van & Marinus Travel award for 2021

The coronavirus has transformed life as we know it, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t have fun!

The GRCC Foundation is happy to once again offer the Van & Marinus Travel award for 2021 – with a twist.  Employees may submit essays telling us how they intend to travel or relax, and still have fun during the pandemic this summer!

Please view the attached file for rules and deadlines.

Teacher Appreciation Week — You are appreciated

Thank you to all the Grand Rapids Community College professors who have gone above and beyond.  During this COVID pandemic, professors have been tested, challenged, overworked, and the sacrifices have not been unnoticed.  You have provided grace, compassion, hope, support, and an awesome education to the students at Grand Rapids Community College.  Thank you!

“Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace.” (Confucius)
