Passing of MCC’s Official Dog, “Luke”

The Administrative Services Division and the Facilities Department regrets to inform the college community that our four-legged “furry friend” and companion, Luke , MCC’s official dog, was put to sleep on Saturday after suffering with a terminal illness for the past several weeks.

Luke was “hired” in 1998 and for the past 10 years he enjoyed his ability to scare away the geese and to keep them from flocking and leaving trails on our beautiful grounds. He did an admirable job and will be greatly missed. Ron Fess, Grounds Supervisor, who cared for Luke, stated “It was a very difficult decision to make but it was best for Luke.”
