Former SMU standout quarterback, Ramon Flanigan, presented a ‘lifetime achievement’ award to Dr. Basheer Ahmed at the 25th anniversary banquet of the Muslim Community Center for Human Services (MCC) on Friday evening. 

The banquet, held at the DFW Hilton in Irving, attracted nearly 300 guests, including Tarrant County District Attorney, Sharen Wilson and former Euless City Councilmember Salman Bhojani.

MCC, a non-profit, located in Tarrant County, provides free and low cost medical services to people in North Texas without regards to ethnicity, place of birth or languages spoken. 

Physicians and dentists donate their time and their services to residents who would go without quality health care but for the organization.

“Historically, our organization has been committed to those who find themselves on the margins of life, said Dr. Sheeza Mohsin, the executive director of MCC. “We are looking forward to doing more in the future.”
