The Missouri Community College Association (MCCA) has recognized a State Fair Community College student and an instructor for academic excellence. The two were honored in April in Jefferson City.

SFCC

Student Hayden Moore, Concordia, was named to MCCA’s All-Missouri Academic First Team. Moore received a $500 scholarship made possible by a donation from MOHELA, the state’s not-for-profit secondary market lender and servicer in the student loan industry. He also was named one of three 2017 Coca-Cola Scholars from Missouri and received a $1,000 scholarship.

Moore, a sophomore, transferred to the University of Central Missouri last semester and is a member of the Alpha Lambda Omega chapter of Phi Theta Kappa honor society.

Jack Hayes, Chemistry instructor, received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. The award is given to the top community college teachers in the state each year and includes a proclamation from Missouri Governor Eric Greitens.

Hayes has taught at SFCC for more than 10 years and was named 2015-2016 Instructor of the Year.

MCCA is a statewide organization through which Missouri’s community colleges work together to advance common agendas. MCCA provides advocacy, education, information, and networking opportunities in service of the state’s 5,700 community college faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees.
