The Alumni Association is a division of the HCC Foundation. College Alumni play an important role for the College in many ways. Alumni offer new and innovative ideas and can serve as an avenue of communication for students and the community. Many alumni serve their alma mater by becoming volunteers as student mentors, student recruiters or as college supporters in their community to give something in return to the College that helped shape their lives.
