MCC Faculty Member, Students Discuss Their Recent Efforts to Help in Puerto Rico

In late April, Governor Cuomo announced the launch of the NY Stands with Puerto Rico Recovery and Rebuilding Initiative which deployed approximately 500 SUNY and CUNY students this summer to help in the rebuild of the hurricane-ravaged island. MCC, the only community college considered a hub in this initiative, sent a group of 10 college students (6 from MCC and 4 from other SUNY colleges) to participate in this project. Led by MCC Faculty Member Marisol Galarza-Ruiz, the group partnered with All Hands & Hearts from Aug. 12 - 25 to accomplish one significant goal: to build roofs.

On Monday, August 27, Professor Galarza-Ruiz along with MCC Students Mahjari Hutchinson and Kyle Navratil discussed their recent trip with WROC-8 reporter Emily Noonan.
