Leipzig Paints MCCC
Renowned artist and Professor Mel Leipzig has made a second home at MCCC. So what could be more fitting than the college's Gallery hosting a one-man show of nine of Leipzig's recent paintings of faculty, staff and students. You can see it Sunday, June 12 from 2 to 5 p.m., and Tuesday, June 14 from 5 to 8 p.m. The show's featured subjects include faculty members Kyle Stevenson, Sarah Sweeney, Michael Dalton, John Monahan, Barry Levy, Steve Voorhees, Mitch Canter, Doug Fee and Frank Benowitz. More here with photos.
Staff Lend Hand to Habitat for Humanity
A group of seven intrepid MCCC volunteers from the Liberal Arts Division lent a helping hand to Habitat for Humanity in Trenton on June 4, working at two sites off Clinton Avenue. Their first stop was a vacant Habitat home, where members of the group cleared and leveled the overgrown backyard and prepared the flooring inside the house for new carpeting. In their second stop, they tackled an adjacent abandoned lot that needed major T.L.C., including clearing trees and brush, bundling up trash and removing snakes. (Yikes!) English faculty member Jack Tabor is already thinking about next year with plans to broaden the effort to other divisions and to students. More here.
Former President Greenfield Honored
During a reception on May 27, MCCC honored Dr. Richard K. Greenfield, who served as college president from 1966 to 1975. Greenfield delivered the keynote speech at Commencement ceremonies on May 26. Attending were former colleagues and friends of Dr. Greenfield. Presenting brief remembrances were former Acting President Tom Wilfrid and former Dean of Nursing HelenMarie Dolton. More here with photos.
Pratico and Villalba Named Scholar-Athletes

Alumni Success: John J. Veisz, Architect
John Veisz, a 1977 graduate who continued at Kent State University in Ohio, is an architect with the firm Veisz Hopkins Duthie (formerly Faridy Veisz Fraytak). Veisz oversees 29 full- and part-time staff members. Four current employees are graduates of MCCC's Architecture program, and Veisz says he has had as many as eight on staff at one time. (His partner, George Duthie, is also an MCCC Architecture alum.)
"I'm a little biased, but we favor Mercer grads and it's always a good choice," Veisz maintains. More here.
Softball Team Has Share of Success
Ending the season with a 25-16 record, the MCCC Lady Vikings softball team has plenty of reasons to be satisfied. There were many hard-fought and decisive victories in a season that will be remembered as uniquely challenging, according to Head Coach Ryan Zegarski. More here.
