Established in 1937 as the “13th and 14th grades” at Meridian High School, Meridian Community College is a testament to the resilient spirit and ambitious vision of our community. The of Dr. H.M. Ivy, MCC operated out of Meridian High School until 1965 when it moved to its current location. In 1978, it transitioned from Meridian Junior College to Meridian Community College to encapsulate its broadened mission and diverse opportunities. A period of impressive expansion followed under the guidance of our first official president, Dr. William F. Scaggs, marking the beginning of an era of growth and innovation that continues today. From its humble beginnings to its transformation into a beacon of educational advancement, MCC's history is a living chronicle of progress and commitment to the local community.
