Dr. Tammy DeFranco, director of Student Services at the Cape May County Campus, presented an art program to the Upper Township Senior Group that visited the campus on June 22. The seniors viewed the art show from the Aging and Disability Services, toured the campus, were provided with SAGES information, and worked on two art projects (a picture frame and a jewelry box). They had a wonderful time and thought the college campus was beautiful and said the same about the artwork.

Congratulations to part-time faculty support, Deanna Dieterly, on her graduation from Cumberland County College. Deanna graduated with an Office Administration Associate in Applied Science degree and a Government Office certificate. Way to go Deanna…we are proud of you.

Dr. DeFranco and Dr. Mitchell Levy, vice president of Student Affairs and dean, Cape May County Campus,  welcomed the 38 seniors from Lower and Wildwood Senior Centers through The Office of Aging and Disability Center of Cape May County where they toured the Senior Art Show and worked on an art project on June 27. The seniors loved the campus and visited the Veteran’s Lounge. They were excited about coming back to get involved with the next event.

Dr. DeFranco is getting ready for her “Free Tables” for students in need at CMCC. With that in mind, she is asking for the following items to be donated: shampoo, lotion, deodorant and non-perishable food items.

Dr. Tammy DeFranco provided a career exploration interactive workshop for visiting Wildwood students on June 19. The students participated in a hands-on interactive career assessment, explored and searched careers, and designed T-shirts with their career choice and a positive affirmation. Students were given a survey and here are some of their responses: “You do not need to know about a career to go to college, that the college will help you with a career,” and “I learned to never stop trying or give up.” The students were excited about the workshop and worked very hard at designing their career t-shirts.
