West Windsor, N.J. - Gathering recently to present proceeds from "Floyd Fest," a scholarship event to establish the Jim and Fannie Floyd Scholarship Fund at Mercer County Community College (MCCC), are, from left, event co-chair Debby D'Arcangelo, honoree Jim Floyd, MCCC President Patricia C. Donohue, and co-chair Hendricks Davis.

Held at the Nassau Inn Oct. 17, "Floyd Fest" drew 180 guests and raised more than $35,000 for this newly endowed scholarship, whose earnings will be awarded annually to needy MCCC students. The planning committee included members of the MCCC Foundation and Princeton community volunteers. Jim Floyd has been a member of the college's Foundation Board for more than 30 years. Along with his late wife Fannie, Mr. Floyd has dedicated himself to improving the lives of young people through education.

Given the success of this year's event, plans are already underway to host a second Floyd Fest fundraiser in October, 2011. More information on donating to MCCC is available on the Foundation webpage here or by email at frangioa@mccc.edu.
