Here’s the Scoop — December 2014

Senior Manager of Compliance Alison Blizzard’s dog, Mr. Re, was selected as the winner of the ACME Hairy and Scary Photo Contest. There were more than 100 entries, and the winner could pick an animal shelter of their choice to donate $250 toward. Alison chose Beacon Animal Rescue, and when she went to make her donation  Nov. 21, she was presented with a $50 gift card to ACME, as well.

On Tuesday, Nov.12, faculty from the Mays Landing and Cape May County
campuses came together to discuss Jeff Greenfield’s provocative
work, Then Everything Changed: Stunning Alternate Histories of American
Politics: JFK, RFK, Carter, Ford, Reagan
.

Adjunct professor Lydia Fecteau, the discussion leader, opened the
event with background information on Greenfield’s career as a senior
political correspondent and White House insider. Next, the
participants discussed the book’s fascinating scenarios that centered
around three political “what ifs”: What if the actual but little-known
assassination attempt on John F. Kennedy had succeeded shortly after
his election? What if President Ford had defeated Jimmy Carter in
1976? What if Robert Kennedy had lived and been elected to the White
House? An enthusiastic exchange of comments and ideas culminated in
the consensus that Then Everything Changed was a poignant reminder on
how the course of history can change on the turn of a dime.

The renovations in the Bursar’s Office at the Mays Landing campus are complete.  The staff are mostly settled into their new areas.  The Bursar’s Office staff would like to thank the Facilities and IT staffers for all of their hard work constructing and setting up the new offices.  A special thank you to Tom DiPietro and Rick Garwood.

Ed Perkins, Facilities Management, and Michelle Perkins, Instructional Technology, send the following note of thanks: “We would like to thank our Atlantic Cape family for their thoughts, support and prayers during such a difficult time. We appreciated all of the cards, Edible Arrangements and other food sent to our family. The heartfelt kindness shared with our family has helped provide comfort during this time of loss.”
