MPCC is offering educational gift certificates to help students offset the cost of tuition, fees, housing or meal plans. Those giving the certificates may choose the dollar amount and designate the category of support.

Looking for a unique way to thank that babysitter, mail carrier, landscaper or other special someone who always comes through for you? Mid-Plains Community College has the perfect idea. 

This Christmas, MPCC is offering the gift of learning through educational gift certificates. Redeemable at any MPCC campus, the certificates may be used to offset the cost of tuition, fees, housing or meal plans. 

They can also be used for courses offered through the college's Business and Community Education department, such as grant writing, painting, crocheting, hair braiding, ballroom dancing, professional truck driving, youth ATV training and business skills classes among many others. 

It's a win-win kind of gift, according to Wendy Schramm, MPCC area director of accounting, when asked why people should consider giving the certificates. 

"For those who seem hard to buy for, these certificates can offer the chance to try something new," said Schramm. "For those already studying with us or planning to start college in the near future, these gifts can financially support their educational goals."  

Those gifting the certificates may choose the dollar amount and designate the category of support. The certificates can be purchased with cash, a check or a credit card, but may not be redeemed for cash.  

More information is available through the college's Business Office at (308) 535-3777 or studentaccounts@mpcc.edu
