2nd Annual Gateway to College Student Recognition Ceremony Celebrates its Graduates and “Friends of Gateway”

For the second year, Gateway to College recognized its continuing students with a ceremony on Thursday May 14, 2009.  We celebrated our five graduates; Samka Duric, Jessica Kennedy, Tu Nguyen, Jasmine Pyatt and Albert Valentin III.  Each of these students completed their New York State High School Regents Diploma and plan to continue their studies here at MCC.

At this year’s celebration Gateway staff and students recognized faculty with the Friends of Gateway Award.  The recipients were:  Mary Arnold, Michael Britton, Julie Damerell, Tokeya Graham, Ramona Moore, Michael Nolan, Verdis Robinson, Richard Stevens, Tony Vinci and Bobby Wright.  Faculty members were chosen by a student-driven selection process that identified faculty who went above and beyond to support the success of Gateway students.

Please join us in recognizing these great educators and in celebrating our prestigious graduates!
