Join the Fun on April 11

for his favorite team. Cost is $15 per person. Call ext.

Bake Sale Today, April 1
The MCCC Hospitality Club will hold a bake sale today during lunch
hour in the Student Center.
Student Government Donates
MCCC's Student Government Association recently donated $1,150 to Trenton's
Anchor House, a shelter and outreach program serving the youth of central
New Jersey. "I cannot thank you enough for all you've done," said
June Albanowski, Anchor House director. "We rely heavily on the support
of the community to keep our doors open."
The money was raised from September through December via bake and candy
sales, a "dating auction," for structured on-campus get togethers, and
a bear sale.

Thanks from Harrison Morson
Harrison Morson was a recipient of this year's "Pillars of the Profession"
award presented at the National Association for Student Personnel Administrators'
convention in St. Louis March 22-26. The award is designed "to honor
distinguished members and individuals who have made a significant contribution
to the Student Affairs profession."
"It was indeed an honor and privilege to represent Mercer as the only community
college awardee this year," Morson said. "My joy in accepting the
award is only surpassed by my reflections of those at Mercer who made my
career in Student Affairs such a personal gratification," Morson said. He
also extends his thanks "for the contributions and nomination support" to
Donald Beach, Diane Campbell, former president John Hanley, Beverly Richardson
and Tom Wilfrid.
