Floyd Fest Launches Scholarship Fund
More than 180 friends, family members and elected officials gathered for "Floyd Fest" last Sunday to honor Jim Floyd and his late wife, Fannie, and to launch the endowment of the Jim and Fannie Floyd Scholarship Fund at MCCC. The fund will be earmarked for students with the greatest need.
The college's Foundation Board and a committee of volunteers planned the event, held at Princeton's Nassau Inn. More here with photos.
Golfing for MCCC Scholarships
Showers did not dampen the spirits of the 80 participants who came out for MCCC's 19th Annual Golf Classic on Oct. 5. Hosted by the Athletics Department at Mercer Oaks Golf Course, the event raised funds that will be donated to the MCCC Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund. Last year tournament proceeds assisted 51 student athletes with their college education. Assistant Dean John Simone noted that athletics plays a valuable role at the community college level. "Participation on a sports team is both an academic motivator and a character builder," he said. "This showing of community support encourages our athletes to stay on track academically and continue on a productive path." More here with photos.
Holocaust Exhibit Opening Attracts VIPs
The Mercer County Holocaust/Genocide Resource Center's show "From the Warsau Ghetto to Darfur" opened at MCCC's Gallery Oct. 13, drawing a very engaged audience, including two Holocaust survivors, photographers whose work is on exhibit, Congressman Chris Smith, County Executive Brian Hughes, and West Windsor Mayor Shing-Fu Hsueh. The show, which runs through Nov. 5, features powerful photographs taken in the Warsau Ghetto during World War II, post-war photos of concentration camps and survivors with accompanying commentaries, and photos from Darfur from a Doctors Without Borders pediatrician. More here.

MCCC Gallery Volunteers Are Artists in Their Own Right
The artists featured in "Plastics Alchemy," the show that opened the MCCC Gallery season in September, all have talent in common. They also have another defining bond: they have found a home as volunteers at the college's welcoming, light-filled exhibit space. All have given amply of their time as volunteers over the past decade to ensure that the Gallery keeps its doors open for as many hours as possible each week. Said Gallery Director/Curator Tricia Fagan, "We hope the exhibit served to remind patrons that the engaging, knowledgeable people who greet them at the Gallery are often gifted artists." She notes that some of these wonderfully creative people have taken years, even decades, of art classes at the college, while others simply enjoy being in a beautiful space surrounded by art and other artists.
