TRENTON – In the first big event leading up to the college’s annual graduation ceremony, students who have focused their educational pursuits at the Mercer County Community College (MCCC) James Kerney Campus in Trenton were recognized for their accomplishments among faculty, family and friends at a ceremony at the War Memorial during the 30th annual Celebration of Academic Achievement.

“Some students are taking small steps, some are progressing from one program to the next, and some are graduating from Mercer County Community College,” said Dr. Diane Campbell, vice president for student affairs at MCCC.

Students enrolled in the Career Training Institute, English Language Institute, High School Equivalency program, and the Trenton Makes Program were all recognized with certificates of completion in their respective areas of study. Total, 105 students were awarded certificates for successfully completing their studies.

“It is incredibly inspiring and uplifting to recognize those who have accomplished great things against many odds,” said Dr. Jianping Wang, president of MCCC.

In addition, eight students were awarded scholarships to continue their education.

“Investing in education is investing in the future of Trenton,” said Edward Gwazda, Vice President for College Advancement, in presenting the scholarships. “You have put faith in yourselves, and in turn, we are putting our faith in you.”

Graduation week ceremonies continue on May 15 at 6 p.m. in Kelsey Theatre, when the MCCC Nursing class of 2018 will celebrate its graduation. On Thursday March 17, the college will present its 51st annual commencement ceremony at 5:30 p.m. on the quad on the West Windsor Campus, with an Honors Convocation scheduled for 3 p.m. in Kelsey Theatre. More than 1,000 students are graduating this year.
