HelenMarie Dolton to Receive "Person of the Year" Award at
MCCC's Scholarship Gala March 11

The annual event, to take place at the Hyatt Regency Princeton,

Dolton, who retired from MCCC
in 1992, began her career at the college in 1967, when she was
hired to begin the college’s Nursing program, now one of
its largest. After serving as chair of Nursing, then chair of
Nursing and Allied Health, Dolton became dean of the Division
of Science and Allied Health, overseeing 41 faculty and staff
members. During her tenure she applied for and received several
major grants to facilitate the Nursing program’s growth,
including a federal grant which enabled the college to build its
science building. During her leadership more than 2,000 students
graduated from the Nursing program.
||Dolton earned her bachelor’s
degree in nursing from Georgetown University, her master’s
degree from Saint John’s University in nursing administration,
and pursued additional studies at Columbia University.
After her retirement from MCCC
Dolton served as a full-time volunteer for many years as director
of religious education at Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church
in Ewing. She is a volunteer with SeniorNet, teaching computer
skills to senior citizens, and also chairs a group of college
retirees that meets monthly.
Mercer County Community College’s
gala, “Hollywood Lights,” will include an elegant
dinner, dancing and silent auction. For more information call
