Miami, December 6, 2012 - Miami Dade College (MDC) is searching for more alumni to feature in its alumni advertising campaign, “I Am MDC.” Over the years, this important campaign has been instrumental in highlighting successful MDC alumni through daily ads in The Miami Herald, El Nuevo Herald, Diario Las Americas and on college marketing materials.

Beginning in 1998, the “I Am MDC” campaign has featured more than 3,500 successful alumni. It showcases the contributions MDC graduates make to the community and beyond. Their success also sends a powerful message to potential MDC students, as it validates the quality of the educational programs offered by the College.

“My fellow alumni serve as an inspiration to us all,” said Annabelle Rojas (MDC ‘84), executive director of the Miami Dade College Foundation.
