MouthWorks Show A Success
MouthWorks, a new speaking troupe made up of MCCC Communication students, had its first independent show, called Metonymics, on Dec. 19 in the Student Center. "It was a fabulous success," said faculty member Kathy Paluscio." We got about 100 folks -- parents, friends and faculty. The show was pure hilarity all the way through." The performance featured oral works by 12 talented students who made the show happen during their exam week, after a cancellation because of snow on Dec. 5.

Paluscio said special thanks are due to Jackie Dunn, Kitty Getlik, Dean Bob Terrano, Danielle Garruba and the Student Activities Staff, the Cable TV and Distribution Center's Tony Bruzaitis, Ron Spych and Frank Gravina, the Maintenance and Security Staff members and Mike Dill.

"All pulled together at the last minute to help our students create a wonderful evening," Paluscio said. "The staff members at Mercer really go out of their way to help. These folks handled all my last minute requests about snacks, lights, sound, and facilities. The students and I want them to know how much we appreciate their help. It was a truly magical evening."
