MCCC To Cut the Ribbon for James Kerney Campus Addition
Thomas N. Wilfrid, Ph.D.

All of us at Mercer are excited that the construction of an attractive new Broad Street entrance for the James Kerney Campus (JKC) in downtown Trenton is nearly completed. The project is also providing a new classroom to enable us to continue to expand JKC educational offerings.

We hope that many friends of MCCC and community members will join us on Thursday, July 20 at 5:30 p.m. at the James Kerney Campus for a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony. (See the flyer below.)

If you are planning to attend, we ask that you let us know by calling Rosanne Zarrilli at (609) 570-3608.

As you may know, for the first time this spring the number of students enrolled in JKC credit courses topped 1,000. In response to new course offerings, such as Anatomy and Physiology, the number of credits taken by JKC students increased 14% over last year. The JKC's noncredit programs also continue to grow.

If you can't attend the ceremony, try to stop by the James Kerney Campus sometime soon to see the new entrance and classroom. Vice President for College Advancement and JKC Provost Dr. Beverly Richardson and staff will be glad to greet you and share our enthusiasm for the continuing growth and vitality of the James Kerney Campus.
