Radiography Announces New Equipment/Lab
Courtesy of a Carl D. Perkins federally-funded grant, MCCC’s Radiography Program has received state-of-the-art digital radiographic equipment to enhance instruction. The new digital x-ray imaging equipment, known as the Philips Essenta Digital Radiographic System (DR), displays images on a computer monitor, replacing conventional film-based radiographic units. Lab renovations completed this summer included removing a darkroom, which expanded lab space for the new system. More here.
$35,000 Check Presented from "Floyd Fest"
Held at the Nassau Inn Oct. 17, "Floyd Fest" drew 180 guests and raised more than $35,000 for a new endowed scholarship named for Jim and Fannie Floyd, whose earnings will be awarded annually to needy MCCC students. The planning committee included members of the MCCC Foundation and Princeton community volunteers. Jim Floyd has been a member of the college's Foundation Board for more than 30 years. Given the success of this year's event, plans are already underway to host a second Floyd Fest fundraiser in October, 2011. More here.
Rewarding Soccer Season for Coach Povia
Two games during the regular season foretold a satisfying ending for the men's soccer team. The Vikings regained the Region 19 title and earned a 7-0 record in the region and a 13-4 record overall. Says first-year Head Coach Larry Povia, "These players made amazing progress from the beginning to the end. I couldn't be prouder of them as players and gentlemen." More here.
Alumni Success: Artist Michele Green
For MCCC alumna Michele Green '82 (AAS, Advertising Design), art was not a choice, but a calling. "I sold my first painting when I was 14. I was hooked after that." She notes that artists are "blessed with a gift, and burdened with a desire to relay the mind's images." Green's fascination with the highways and byways of Delaware has led to one of the largest treasure troves of Delaware landscape painting anywhere. Her paintings have been featured in Delaware Today and Outdoor Delaware magazines and one of her landscapes hangs in the home of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden. More here.
