Dr. Donohue Appointed To Technology Council Board
The New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) has appointed President Patricia C. Donohue to a two-year term on its Board of Directors. The NJTC collectively represents almost 900 member companies from technology sectors and institutions that work together to support their own enterprises while advancing New Jersey's status as a technology leader in the United States. According to Dr. Donohue, her new appointment also aligns with Mercer's goals. "We seek to provide our students with technology skills that will be valued in the workplace and give them an edge in their careers. My appointment to the NJTC Board will enable me to bring back what I learn from business leaders to ensure that our students are well prepared for the future." More here.

Alumni Success: Port Authority Supervisor Jeffrey Yuhasz
When looking at the career accomplishments of MCCC alumnus Jeffrey Yuhasz '89 (A.A.S., Radio), it's hard to believe he was once a 16-year-old high school dropout. Now the Contractor Insurance Programs (CIP) Supervisor of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Yuhasz credits Mercer as the first rung on his ladder to success. He graduated cum laude from Whitman College in 1999 with a B.A. in English and a minor in comparative religion. He then went on to the University of Washington School Of Law on a full scholarship, and graduated in 2002 with a Doctor of Jurisprudence. Read his full story here.
