We know. This year has been a tough one. But as a result of all the hard times, we were able to recognize and celebrate that 2020 often brought out the best in us as humans. We redefined “courageous essential frontline worker” to include grocery store clerks, teachers, and fry cooks. We watched the daily selflessness of healthcare professionals as they fought for our very lives. And we admired the incredible work of scientists and researchers who raced against time to learn how to treat the virus and to create a vaccine. We realized that there are more heroes around us than we ever saw before.

And in Tampa Bay, thousands upon thousands of these heroes got their start at HCC. Support for our students takes many forms. We hope you will take a moment to view our recent student-created video about HCC alumni on the frontlines by clicking above, and please consider making a donation to support the students of today so they can become the heroes of tomorrow,
