Cheer at Beverly Richardson's Retirement Party
Family members and friends of Dr. Beverly
Richardson enjoyed a festive retirement party on June 12. While photographs
of Beverly and friends rotated on the large TV screens, all enjoyed the
jazz band and great food provided by Mercer's Conference Center.
President Rev. William Coleman presented Beverly with a large mounted
print of the "Dr. Beverly A. Richardson Learning Center." She
told the story about how the James Kerney Learning Center was conceived
and constructed many years ago. Friends took the microphone briefly to
say a few words about Beverly, whose husband, two daughters, and parents
attended the party. See photos here.

Emile Dubois Builds Historic Car
in 2007, former MCCC electrician Emile Dubois wanted to do something to
keep his mind sharp. He decided to build a historic auto based on the
1907 Orient, originally made by a French company for mail delivery. "It's
never too late to begin something new," says Dubois, who is 70. He
didn't come to this task without knowledge, however. During his career
he was a mechanic for General Motors, worked for Princeton University
on the fusion reactor, and for G.E. Astrospace before joining MCCC. Click
