WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College will host commencement ceremonies on Thursday, May 22 at 5:30 p.m. in the college's central quadrangle on the West Windsor Campus. This year approximately 900 students are graduating.

The keynote speaker will be Democratic Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, the Majority Leader of the New Jersey General Assembly. Coleman is the highest ranking African-American and woman in the NJ State Legislature. She represents the 15th Legislative District, which includes the Mercer County communities of Ewing, Hopewell Borough, Hopewell Township, Lawrence, Pennington, Princeton Borough, Princeton Township, and Trenton.

Delivering the student address will be Jennifer Leigh, a Television broadcasting major who has been active in campus affairs and who credits Mercer with transforming her life. Leigh produced and directed many television productions for Mercer's cable TV station, Channel 26, and for a marketing video. She won several awards for her work. She plans to begin studies toward her bachelor's degree in Television this fall, and is still deciding which college she will attend.

During the ceremony one of the college's faculty members will receive the Distinguished Teaching Award. Each year the awardee is kept secret until Commencement Day.
