MCC mourns loss of former Blue River president

Malcolm Wilson, former president of MCC-Blue River, passed away on Saturday, July 30.

Malcolm was injured in a motorcycle accident last year, leaving him with debilitating injuries. Despite his injuries, he remained a beacon of hope and encouragement for all who visited with him, family and friends said.

Malcolm served as MCC-Blue River president from 2001-2007. He first came to MCC in 1983 to serve as dean of students at MCC-Penn Valley, then became director of student development in 1996. He served in that role until 1998 when he was named interim vice chancellor of student resources and development, a role he held until he was appointed president of Blue River.

A memorial service will be held Thursday, August 4, noon to 1 p.m. at the Heartland Church of Christ, 6120 NW Prairie View Road, Kansas City, Mo. 64151. In lieu of flowers, Malcolm's family has suggested contributions be made to the Malcolm T. Wilson Difference Maker Fund at the MCC Foundation.

Malcolm was respected as a man of integrity dedicated to the ideals of diversity. He will be truly missed by the many people whose lives he touched. To observe his passing, the MCC flag at each MCC campus has been be lowered to half-staff until the completion of his funeral.
