“I recently took the MCLA class, which was an expedition through Montgomery’s history, culture, government, and people. I learned about everything from the city’s founding to its current challenges & opportunities. I also made some great friends along the way. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn more about the city of Montgomery.”

John Durham, MCLA 2023

“Whether you plan on being a resident of Montgomery for a year or the rest of your life, participating in MCLA is a must if you’re curious about the inner workings of this city. The dedication of the city’s employees and elected officials to the success of this program was humbling. Each session was eye-opening and informative, with the added bonus of now having great connections with some of my fellow Montgomery residents that I didn’t have before participating in MCLA.”

Josephine McKenrick, MCLA 2023
