Verna May McClain was an exceptional member of the South Mountain community. Often referred to as the “Mother of South Mountain,” Verna left a legacy of camaraderie, and of advocacy to build a united and educated community in South Phoenix.
At South Mountain Community College we also celebrate her dedication and her instrumental role in the creation of our college.
In 2017, South Mountain Community College named the Student Emergency Fund to honor her memory and her legacy at SMCC.
Please come join in a celebration of her memory, and donate to this vital student fund.
