Here’s the Scoop–Aug. 31, 2018

We regret to report the passing of retiree, Betty Ramsey.  She was 81.
Betty worked at Atlantic Cape from 1973 – 1998,  serving as a bookkeeper until her promotion to payroll supervisor.  Betty’s biggest contribution to the college, aside from her delicious pumpkin bread at the holidays, may have been her kindness and guidance in working with new employees on the college’s financial and human resources computer systems.  She was always willing to take time out to guide others and help them rectify errors.
She is survived by her children, Pamela, Suzanne and Thomas E. Ramsey.
Visitation will be held from 10 am.-noon on Saturday, Sept. 1, at Parsels Funeral Home, 324 New Jersey Ave., Absecon.  A service will begin at noon.

Expressions may be sent to the family in care of Pamela Ramsey 159 Muirfield Court, Mays Landing, NJ 08330

Our condolences to Edwin Nieves, facilities, and Tiffani Harris, accounts payable, on the loss of Edwin’s loving father, Camelo Nieves Sr.
Mr. Nieves resided in Ciales, Puerto Rico.  He had 12 children and many grandchildren.
Services will be held on Friday, Aug. 31, in Puerto Rico.

Expressions may be sent to Edwin and Tiffani at 3248 Hampton Court, Mays Landing, NJ 08330.

A message from Paula Davis, dean of student affairs and enrollment management:

To continue to help our new students feel comfortable and prepared, we will have four “Welcome/Information Tables” on the Mays Landing Campus the first week of classes. We need volunteers to distribute maps, directions on how to read a schedule, and other important information (Student Affairs will supply).

We need your assistance for this important initiative. Please go to the link below to schedule yourself for as many hours as your schedule allows. If you are available to assist please request permission from your supervisor. Any questions contact Student Affairs x5083 or

Instructions for sign-up; please type your full name in as many “boxes” for Tuesday, Sept. 4, through Saturday, Sept. 8, as you can. The different days are at bottom of the chart. After you enter your name, just exit chart. (you do not have to save).

If possible, please wear Atlantic Cape shirt/hat/ “How Can I Help You” button/ID badge, lanyard or even a cape. The “How Can I Help You” buttons and capes are available in the College Relations Department.

All volunteers will report to Welcome Tables next week at the dates/times you have selected as follows:

If you are Volunteer #1, please report to table/tent in the Quad.

Volunteer #2, report to the table in STEM Bldg lobby.  

Volunteer #3, report to the table in front of the Theater.

Volunteer #4, report to the table in G Bldg lobby.

Because welcoming students is a college-wide priority, Atlantic City and Cape May County students will be greeted by staff as they enter those campuses.

On behalf of the student body, thank you for your support.
