TV Students Produce Video for Mercer Chamber
Mercer's Television production students recently presented their client project, a marketing video project for Liz Tindall, vice president of the Mercer County Chamber of Commerce. "Again….awesome job by the students; I am so impressed!" said Ms. Tindall." The students were also invited to the chamber's luncheon to present the video.

Steve Voorhees said, "The students worked very hard over the course of the semester developing and producing a video the Chamber can use to attract new members." For more on Mercer's TV program, visit the TV Club's website: http://www.mctv26.org

TV Program Hosts Alumni Panel
On Nov. 25 Mercer's TV program hosted an alumni panel event for television and film majors. According to Steve Voorhees, 12 MCCC alumni came back to speak to current students about the academic programs and transfer options at their four-year schools. This gave students the opportunity to learn about facilities, faculty and curriculum at TCNJ, Rutgers, Rider, Rowan, Montclair, East Carolina Univ. and the New England School of Communications. About 15 current students attended the event, and feedback was positive.

African American Student Organization Assists CWEP Clients
Corrected information: Mercer's African American Student Organization collected and delivered clothing donated by the MCCC community to clients served by the Community Work Experience Program (CWEP). Mercer's Adult Education Department works with CWEP clients to help them enhance their work readiness skills. These clients are referred by the Mercer County One Stop Career Center.
