In Memoriam: Dr. Frank M. Chambers
The College mourns the passing of Frank M. Chambers, the founding president of MCC, who passed away December 23. He had just turned 94. "As the founding father of one of the first community colleges in New Jersey, Frank Chambers is a member of a small group of dedicated people whose life and work transformed the lives of thousand of students," said MCC President Joann La Perla-Morales.
Grant Awarded for Security Cameras
Middlesex is one of seven community colleges in the state that have been awarded funding to install security cameras on campus. Each grant is for $157,000, and, at MCC, will allow the College to install cameras on interior and exterior common areas of the College Center, Performing Arts Center, Studio Theatre, Library, Johnson Learning Center and the Instructional Resource Center.
