PIE (People In Education)

The People In Education club is intended for future teachers. This club runs numerous fund raisers for philanthropic purposes, and takes an annual trip to the New Jersey Teachers Convention as well as to the restored colonial village at Smithville. In the past this club has organized presentations by professional educators and has sponsored educational trips to Boston, Salem, and other historic or education-related sites.

Both of the department’s clubs encourage students to apply for either or both of the Annual Steven Rosengarten Memorial Scholarships. Eligibility and essay dates are available at the MCC Foundation Office in Center IV.

Students in both of these clubs begin professional networking activities. Often these members develop friendships and contacts that last throughout their professional careers.
