Here’s the Scoop–April 13, 2017

A message from Human Resources: 

We regret to report the passing of retired security officer Donald “Don” Nigsch.

Donald Nigsch joined, what was then, Atlantic Community College as a Security Guard I on May 2, 1985. Don spent most of his career at the Worthington Atlantic City Campus.   For many years he’d been most familiar to WACC staff and students alike as the friendly guard manning the second floor security desk.

Director of Security William Keener said that Don “works well with his supervisors and he performs his duties well with little supervision.  He is constantly updating and working with building management to assure classes and conferences run smoothly.”

In 2005, Don was honored along with his fellow WACC Security team members Ernie Sandoz, Serena Palmer, Rick Collins and Bill Smith as the Employees of the Quarter for their dedication and service to the college and the Atlantic City Campus in particular.

Don retired from the college on Sept. 30, 2010.


The Instructional Resource Committee held its annual April Poetry event in honor of National Poetry Month on Tuesday, April 11. The discussion of New Jersey poets was led by retired professor Elinor Mattern, and included works by such diverse writers as Walt Whitman, William Carlos Williams, and Kathleen Graber, who was an Atlantic Cape Community College visiting scholar.

A cross section of the college community participated from all three campuses. Attendees included Merrill-Jean Bailey, Tom Celandine, Tammy DeFranco, Maryann Flemming-McCall, Claude Fortune, Gianni Gaudino, Ron McArthur, Gwen McIntyre, Vickie Melograno, Leslie Murtha, Louis Nelson, Jay Peterson, Effie Russell, Rich Russell, and Regina Van Epps.

The IRC would like to express its appreciation to Elinor Mattern for returning to campus to host the event. Elinor will be hosting another poetry event, Favorite Poems + You, Thursday, April 27, from 6-8 p.m., in the Art Gallery located above the William Spangler Library, Mays Landing Campus.
