Two Monroe Community College alumni returned to the school on Monday to say they will be making a $4 million donation as part of a $50 million campaign to increase the number of scholarships available to MCC students.
Robin and Timothy Wentworth, now living in St. Louis, formerly of Rochester, were 1980 graduates of MCC. The gift from the Wentworths is the largest in the college’s history and will help provide full scholarships to 100 MCC students each year.
The gift exceeds the Wentworths’ previous gift of $2.25 million. MCC plans to name its arts building in their honor.
