Wayne Balmer is among Mesa Community College’s most enthusiastic alumni and students. He’s taken so many classes at MCC that he’s obtained multiple associate degrees and certificates. Over the years, he has been an ardent supporter of scholarships for MCC students. In addition, Wayne wanted to help promote the Exercise Science department at MCC and support students studying to become personal trainers through the establishment of the Wayne Balmer Exercise Science Endowed Fund. He said, “People think of Exercise Science as jocks lifting weights. But it’s also a focus on health—something everyone can relate to.” This scholarship opportunity will enable Exercise Science students to focus on learning versus loans as they pursue their life goals.
