Helps Cut the Ribbon for Daylight/Twilight High School
was among the partners in a massive, three-year project to open a new
Daylight/Twilight High School in Trenton, which came to fruition at a
ribbon cutting on June 12. The top two floors of the impressive five-story
building will house the college's Career Training Institute and Talent
Located just a half block away from Mercer's James Kerney Campus (JKC),
the Daylight/Twilight High School is Trenton's first new school since
Trenton Central High School was constructed in 1929. The school gives
a second chance to those who left school for a variety of reasons and
now wish to return. Photo here.

is Well Represented at Heritage Days
Thousands of area residents flocked to the streets of downtown Trenton
for the Annual Heritage Days Festival, held June 7-8. An MCCC booth was
staffed by college volunteers throughout the weekend. According to Bob
Estok, director of the Career Training Institute (CTI) at JKC, 23 Mercer
staffers did a terrific job fielding a wide range of questions about educational
and training opportunities at both campuses.
In addition to brochures
and other materials, the volunteers distributed over 700 balloons to the
next generation of Mercer students. Culinary students from the CTI, under
the direction of Bill Johnson, prepared and sold barbecued ribs, shrimp,
chicken and steak on a stick, almost completely selling out in the course
of the weekend. Among the special events were four stages with live music,
dance performances, more than 60 ethnic food vendors, arts & crafts,
and a variety of family-oriented activities. Photos here.
from the TV Program
recent graduates, including commencement speaker Jennifer Leigh, have
been accepted to Emerson College in Boston, a prestigious school for TV
and film. This will make four altogether going there, with Josh Miller
being the trailblazer. Josh's mother is a big fan of MCCC and was interviewed
by WWFM at the Dec. 5 board event.
Also, Barry Levy and Steve Voorhees visited Nottingham High School recently
to talk about the program. They showed some of our student work. "Nottingham
students could not believe the level of the work they observed, and showed
definite interest in our program," said Dean Judith Ehresman.
