Coming Event Announcements

Shakespeare Coming to MCCC
Shakespeare ’70, Mercer County’s classical repertory company, kicks off Kelsey Theatre's 2012 Summer Festival with one of Shakespeare’s most light-hearted and enduring plays, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The play features three plots connected by the wedding celebration of Duke Theseus of Athens and Hippolyta, the Amazon queen. Set against the backdrop of a romantic moonlit forest, the narrative follows the adventures of four young lovers and a group of amateur actors, who are unknowingly controlled and manipulated by the mischievous fairies that inhabit the woods.

Performances are Fridays, June 29 and July 6 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, June 30 and July 7 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, July 1 and 8 at 2 p.m. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening night performance on June 29.



June 22-24: “Jeffrey”

June 29 - July 8: "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

Jacob Eapen Honored as a CFO of the Year
Vice President of Administration and Chief Business Officer Jacob Eapen was among three winners of the New Jersey Technology Council’s (NJTC) CFO of the Year award. He was presented with the award at a reception on June 8 at Forsgate Country Club. Each year the NJTC recognizes the accomplishments of financial executives throughout New Jersey.

Serving MCCC since 2006, Mr. Eapen is responsible for Finance, Information Technology, Facilities and College Safety, Purchasing, the Conference Center and Dining Services, and WWFM:The Classical Network. According to President Donohue, “Jacob Eapen is a valued advisor who anticipates and identifies critical issues, and develops strategies and solutions. He led a comprehensive facilities master planning process resulting in a 20-year vision for new construction and renovation.” More here.

Photo Students Produce Documentary for Mercer Street Friends
An outstanding documentary piece on Mercer Street Friends shot by students Jessica Blackwell and Thomas Marasco for their "Documentary Photography" class is now on YouTube. Associate Professor Michael Dalton says every student in the class produces a video, and the final piece can be all still photos or a combination of still and video. They all have to be narrated with music, so students learn about sequencing, storytelling, point of view and making a personal connection."

The best overall documentary gets showcased. More here including words from one of the student producers. See it on YouTube here.

Alumni Success: Ayo Johnson '93
Ayo Johnson, a 1993 Business Administration graduate, first intended to just take a few classes. “I ended up loving Mercer, and I decided to stay on and earn my degree.” Today Johnson has her bachelor's and master's degrees from Rider University. After working in both business and academic settings, Johnson combined her two skill sets to assume the post of executive director at Westminster Community Life Center, which provides various services to the Trenton community, including afterschool care. “I always stand up and proudly say I am a graduate of this college,” she said. “Mercer has so much to offer; the college is the hidden gem of Mercer County.” More here.

Student Activities Award Recipients Featured
The web page is now up featuring student leadership awards presented at the Student Activities Awards dinner on May 11. Instructor/Chef Frank Benowitz was voted Advisor of the Year for his work with the Hospitality Club. Forty-four students were named to Who's Who. Photos and more here.

Men's Tennis Takes 4th Place Nationally
In the NJCAA Division III Men's National Tennis Championships, held in Plano, TX, from May 14-18, MCCC took the fourth place finish nationally. Head Coach Marc Vecchiolla reports that the team exceeded expectations admirably. Earning a final record of 13-4, the Vikings played more matches than in past years against some very good teams - and with fewer numbers on the roster. "This was a hard working group of guys. We only had six players all season and not one of them ever missed a match," Vecchiolla said. More here.

Successful Seasons for Softball and Baseball
The MCCC softball team made it to the Final Four in post-season action. Sophomore catcher Angela Marinos was an offensive powerhouse for the second year. She becomes Mercer's all-time leader with 125 career hits and was named the no. 2 player in Region 19. Also named to the Region's Top Ten list was outfielder Brittany Szafran. More here.

In baseball action, the team completed a highly successful 29-15 season under interim coach Kevin Kerins. The Vikings advanced to the Region 19 final, losing by one run to Lackawanna College. Nine players are transferring to continue their academic and athletic careers at four-year schools.

Project NASA Finance System to "Go Live" July 2
From Susan Bowen: Great news from Project NASA this month! Congratulations to the Finance Team who had a successful “live simulation” on June 12 and 13! Thanks to the leadership of Walt Brooks and Bernice Gottlieb-Smith, the test “launch” went well and we are scheduled to “go live” with the Finance system on July 2nd. This will include the General Ledger, Accounts Payable, and Purchasing systems. More here.
