New MCCC Teaching Kitchen Dedicated
MCCC celebrated the official opening of its new teaching kitchen with a ribbon cutting ceremony Sept. 14. Completed this summer, the kitchen will accommodate growing numbers of students interested in the college’s many hospitality and culinary programs. It was made possible through federal Perkins Grant funding. A state-of-the-art “Point of Sale” system enables student chefs to take food orders electronically at their student-run restaurant which opens for specific periods during the year. Special guest, former White House Chef Sam Morgante, spoke about his work for President George W. Bush, and demonstrated a "Texas Flank Steak" recipe with Chef Frank Benowitz, who invited Morgante.

Unity Through Diversity Debates Delve Into Weighty Questions
The impact of 9-11 ten years later was the subject of two wide ranging panel discussions entitled, "Unity Through Diversity," moderated by MCCC Vice President of Academic Affairs Guy Generals at both campuses. Central themes of the discussion included 9-11's effect on constitutional rights, the importance of balancing individual rights and freedoms with national security, the current fractured political climate in America, and the key role of education to eradicate hatred and increase tolerance of different cultures.

Cross Country Team Joins Faculty and Staff at Heart Walk
Members of the MCCC women's cross country team slowed down their pace a little bit on Sept. 11 in order to participate in the American Heart Association's Heart Walk at Mercer County Park as part of the college's walk team. More here.

MCCC Theatre and Dance Coordinator Jody Person Does the Tango!
When MCCC Theatre and Dance Program Coordinator Jody Person began contemplating the choreography he would develop for the student production of "Rent" in 2010, he realized that a particular number, "The Tango Maureen," would pose a challenge. Person, a dancer with many styles on his resume, had no training in the tango, a highly stylized form of Latin American dance. Person's choreography for "Rent" turned out to be the inspiration for a whole new form of self expression. Upon taking his first tango class, he says, "I fell in love with it." And, Person proved a natural at this dance style with its complex footwork and graceful, precise movements carried out with a partner. More here.

She has also made her mark as a painter and photographer and, most thrillingly at present, as a fashion designer.
