Celebrate Cultural Heritage and the College’s 50th Anniversary

Faculty, staff and students are invited to celebrate cultural heritage and Atlantic Cape’s 50th anniversary Wednesday, Nov. 16, noon-1 p.m., at a Hawaiian Luau themed celebration in the Worthington Atlantic City Campus café.

Learn how to hula as professional Polynesian dancers wearing grass skirts and leis will teach you the moves. And be sure to dress the part, as there will be two Hawaiian dress contests: one for students and one for faculty and staff. Student winners will receive gift certificates for first, second and third place while faculty and staff will compete for two $10 vouchers to the café.

Light refreshments will be served. According to Vita Stovall, in Student Services, a Hawaiian theme was chosen because Hawaii, as the nation’s 50th state, reflects the college’s 50th  anniversary.
