Robert B Gronstal Accounting Scholarship

Robert B Gronstal Accounting Scholarship


[MUSIC PLAYING] Hello. My name is Robert Gronstal. I’m a faculty member at MCC. And I’ve been teaching
here for 44 years. I’m actually in my 45th year. And I love teaching. It’s been a wonderful
career for me. I’m a big fan of the
community college. When I first started
in 1975, it is one of the things
I wanted to try after I graduated from college
and I have had no regrets. I’ve never, ever looked back. I have had a wide circle
of friends at MCC. I just love the students. And I love teaching accounting. Actually, I like teaching the
very first accounting class, and when they struggle, and then
all of a sudden, they get it. It’s just as big a thrill
for me as it is for them. Well, this last summer,
my wife and several of my former colleagues
decided to create a scholarship in my name, the Robert
B Gronstal Accounting Scholarship. I was pretty much flabbergasted
that that happened, but it was very nice. So my wife has
contributed to that. I’ve contributed to that. But I’ve also contributed to the
General Business Scholarship. Students have so many needs. And the scholarships help
provide tuition and some kinds of other assistance that will
help them achieve their goals so that they can be successful. That’s very important to me. So there’s nothing
better in the whole world than watching a student
graduate from MCC and go out in the world
with some key ingredients for success. Considering a donation? I would say do it. You will feel good. You will help people. There’s nothing better than
that in the whole world. [MUSIC PLAYING]
