The History of Mid Michigan College
The Earliest Years
Mid Michigan College. What a fantastic success story. It is, and has been, the center of educational opportunity for all who wish to further their education beyond high school in the Clare-Gladwin area since 1968.
Many careers have been formed, many lives have been changed, as they have been guided by faculty and taken advantage of the wonderful facilities of Mid. Many students have gone on to achieve a four- year degree. Many who earned an Associate Degree or Certificate have higher paying jobs in industry, offices, hospitals, etc., both in and out of our area. Their careers and life success are attributable in no small part to the people and programs of Mid Michigan College.
It is fitting that we reminisce and record for future generations the thoughts which framed the ideas and visions of the future that sparked the creation of a community college in Clare and Gladwin Counties.
