I love MCA because of the students, and I do what I do because of the mission. MCA is definitely what #BlackExcellence looks like, and I am excited to keep moving forward with the team!

Samantha Mewes

Samantha Mewes

College Coach and Counselor

I have worked as MCA’s College Coach and Counselor for the past 9 school years. I am a firm believer in our mission of sending our kids to and through college and feel that it is the best way for them to be able to live the lives they want to live when they get older. I get excited for the opportunity to teach them about college, expose them to college and help them believe that it is something that they can and will do when they graduate from high school.
