Our Veterans celebration pictured here paid tribute to these 17 veterans and about a dozen who could not make it to the event. Our SGO President, Conner Divine introduced his father, retired Army Major Max Divine as our guest speaker. Max started as an enlisted member in the Army and after being allowed to attend MATC in the early 1990's (will still on active duty) he went on to become a Registered Nurse and filled some prestigious positions both while on active duty and after retirement as a result of his start here. The picture at the bottom of this collage is what I lovingly refer to as "The Old Guard" Most of us were either Vietnam or Vietnam Era veterans.

Our Flag Football tournament just ended with our finalists Electric Power Linemen beating out the our Computer Network (INT) players after a very tough and competitive game. We have been discussing adding more club sports as we move forward with athletics and are open to suggestions and support.
From our Counselor, Dan: “The Chili Feed was a huge success, we served around 80 bowls of chili and it was a great day to honor of our Veterans. The “Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner” of the Chili Cook Off goes to the Welding Program…they will be taking the Chili Cook Off traveling trophy fromHVAC and putting it down in their department. Nice work! Thanks to everyone that helped out, and thanks to our Judges, I know it was a rough one trying out all of those delicious chilis!”

“I just received a phone call from Margery Davidson, a lovely lady who recently had her teeth cleaned at the Dental Hygiene Clinic. She wanted me to pass along what an amazing experience she had at our facility. Margery hadn't had dental care in 30-40 years, and that visit 30-40 years ago left her in a lot of pain. Her recent visits here were tremendous and she is no longer afraid to get her teeth cleaned every 6 months. She loves the facility (and the giant tooth that makes the clinic easy to spot) and had great experiences with the both our staff and students. Margery is highly recommending us to all of her friends and acquaintances She said "when someone does something right, it needs to be bragged about." Margery's hygienist was Tess, who did an amazing job and really helped her feel comfortable. Just want to pass this along."
Have a Great Weekend All!
