HACC is creating a year-long marketing campaign, and we want two of our students to be THE faces of the campaign and become #HACCfamous! Sign up for an on-camera interview by June 28!

We are looking for a “Mary” and a “Jeremy.” If you can relate to Mary or Jeremy and are proud to say HACC has helped you, we want you! If you are chosen, you will receive $1,000 toward your spring 2020 and fall 2020 tuition to thank you for your commitment.
