QR Codes Take Off
What is a QR code? Pictured at left, it's a code you can scan with your smart phone that directs your mobile browser to a website. You must first install and launch the scanning app. MCCC has been using them in many publications, and they are catching on. June was our most active month yet, with 261 scans (up from a total of 242 for the previous five months). According to Graphic Designer Edyta Kuciapa, who oversees the project, "Our two top scan-getters were on the fall registration postcard, which included codes linking to the MCCC Enrollment Services page and the University Center."


WWFM Listener Commits to Music and Wellness
Jennifer Vose and her husband, David, of Springfield, MA, have immersed themselves in the world of classical music. As part of WWFM's base of sustaining members, they are enthusiastic listeners and come to campus to participate in the station's pledge drives. They also make the four-hour trek from home to support the station in another way. Jennifer volunteers her time and knowledge to produce a weekly on-air health and wellness feature called Living Well. Legally blind, Jennifer says it's a personal calling to help enhance the well-being of the station's mainly adult audience. Her 90-second pieces run the gamut from getting good quality sleep to staying physically active. More here.


McGlynn Writes for CC Week
Professor Emerita Angela McGlynn has written an article for Community College Week: "POV: Community Colleges Must Be at Forefront In Narrowing Achievement Gaps," linked here. She will also be interviewed by The Packet this month about her new book, "Envisioning Equity."


Alum Kathleen Costello, Special Ed Teacher
Now thriving in her second career as a special education teacher, Kathleen Costello '77 (A.S., Allied Health) is dedicated to lifelong learning. Today she co-teaches general education science and serves as a science resource room specialist. However, she began at Mercer to become a dental assistant. After Mercer she continued at Forsyth's School for Dental Hygienists in Boston. She then earned a second associate degree in Science at Northeastern University in 1981, and a bachelor's degree in Health Science in 1982. Returning to college in 1999, she earned her Graduate Level Teacher Preparation Certificate at Rider University, then a master's degree in Special Education in 2009. More here.
