Open House a Success
More than 75 people attended an Open House on
March 23 at MCCC to learn more about the DREAM program for young adults
with intellectual disabilities. "Even parents of children who are
still quite young came to learn about the program," said coordinator
Sue Onaitis. "If the possibility of college is out there, it raises
the standards for these students." Onaitis said one parent, a doctor
from Bergen County, said he will move to this area when his child is
ready for such a program, since it is not offered where he lives.
The Times sent a reporter and photographer. See
their story here. Newsweek magazine has expressed interest in doing
a story about the program.

Reports Success of On-Air Spring Campaign
Jeffery R. Sekerka, general manager of WWFM, says, "Thanks to everyone
for helping us achieve our membership and financial goals during a very
successful March Membership Campaign! We ended the drive on Monday evening
prior to the Nightly Symphony Series with over 1000 new and renewing
members, which coincided with us breaking through the $120,000 level
for the week. We also utilized our ‘pre-drive’ contributions
and leveraged them throughout the campaign, a strategy that helped us
reach and surpass our goals. The upbeat, positive energy that was projected
by our on-air pitching teams is a great tribute to all of you who contributed
to a well planned, cohesive team effort.
new member event that we promoted ---The WWFM Spring Soiree! --- is
something that I have been planning to initiate for quite a while, and
it has seemed to be received very well so far, based on anecdotal evidence.
I know that many of our supporters who pledged at the designated levels
are anxious to meet staff, mingle with fellow members at the wine &
cheese reception, and attend the music concert by Mercer County’s
own Chatham Wood Duo, on Sunday, June 11 in Princeton. From a listener’s
perspective, our team definitely made it sound very exciting on-air."
Honors Women at Campus Luncheon
The Student Activities Office coordinated a very well-attended luncheon
on March 28 in celebration of Women's Month.
Based on nominations, Kathi Paluscio was honored in the Faculty/Staff
category and PTK advisor Helene Plank was honored in the Club/Organization
Advisor category. For student leaders there was a three-way tie: Johanna
Garrison, SGA President; Marcia Ferguson, SGA Parliamentarian; and Sahra
Musa, PTK Vice President for Fellowship.
In the words of project coordinator Jessica Harris of Student Activities,
"One of the most exciting things about being a woman is having
the opportunity to be successful in so many areas because of our metamorphosis
into so many roles through our lives. Whether you are in your prime
in your role as a faculty or staff member, mother, student, wife, sister,
coach, caretaker, friend, or whatever else we as women are asked to
become, take the time to acknowledge yourself. There are many other
outstanding women on the campus not mentioned on the nominee list, but
YOU know who you are; WE know who you are." Photos
