In these uncertain times, community colleges remain an attractive educational option
Kathleen Hetherington, president of Howard Community College, wrote a response piece to The Baltimore Sun about the value of a community college education during the coronavirus pandemic. The response was published on May 5, 2020, and contains invaluable information for those considering college this year.
"With so much unknown about what the future will bring, community colleges provide Maryland families with a certainty: a wonderful educational value right in your backyard (or online). For high school seniors, now is the best time to become acquainted with your local community college and begin college from the comfort of your home for a fraction of the cost."
