Distinguished Donors

2023 MCC Distinguished Donors Bill and Sammy Gramlich

Bill & Sammy Gramlich (2023)

Bill and Sammy are long-time residents of Morgan County. Bill was previously a member of the MCC Advisory Board and Sammy helped establish the MCC ADN program and served on the MCC Nursing Advisory Board. Sammy’s passion for nursing and Bill’s support led to the establishment of the Gramlich Nursing Scholarship. The scholarship provides financial assistance to students who are interested in MCC’s LPN and RN programs, which continue to produce skilled nurses to serve northeast Colorado. Since the establishment of the Gramlich scholarship, 47 students have received funding to achieve their dream of a career in nursing.

A.F. Williams Family Foundation (2018)

In 1956, Dr. and Mrs. Albert Frederick Williams, not then having any living children, established a charitable family foundation. The Williams Family Foundation has donated generously through the years in order to provide scholarships for MCC students going into the healthcare field. They have given two endowed chairs to the foundation, one for the College’s Radiology Technology director, and one for the Bachelor of Science in nursing director. These endowed chairs fully fund the positions every year, giving the college and foundation the ability to give more student scholarships. 

Dr. Donald F. and Janet R. Datteri (2017)

Dr. Robert F. Datteri was MCC’s second President and he and his wife have been lifetime supporters of the college. They currently have four lifetime giving endowments that help support the college’s vision and its students.
