Dr. Dorado Kinney’s ACC Story
“We are really working hard to put the community back into the community college. As we grow, and as we broaden horizons it’s only going to benefit the communities that we serve. I think it’s going to be a bright 50 years coming.”

“I stand on generations of shoulders. There are many many people who, they day they arrived here in 1973, already had a mindset of what our community could look like if we call worked together.”
Dr. Manuel Gonzalez’s ACC Story
“Whenever I talk about ACC, I do it with a great sense of pride. Pride, in knowing that I am a part of an institution that is really making a difference in breaking generational cycles of poverty.”
