With their past experiences both as Mount Carmel graduates and now fully fledged professionals or retirees from a successful nursing career, Mount Carmel alumni are vital to MCCN. Beyond rekindling memories, sharing knowledge or life experiences, engaging alumni through collaboration with MCCN faculty and staff enables the College to enhance the student experience while offering a meaningful experience for the alumni and a way for them to give back to the alma mater that gave them the foundation for or enhanced their career path.
Led by Debbie Boggs, RN, as director, Alumni Relations harnesses the enthusiasm and fond memories of alumni, focusing their engagement to ensure a bright future for the College through a number of initiatives.
Get your Lenten season off to a great start with MCCN’s Mardi Gras celebration, Tuesday, February 9 from noon to 2 p.m. in the College Gym. Join us for a free (for students) burrito bar and a mask-painting contest. Prizes will be awarded for the best masks. Bring your Mardi Gras beads and join us!
As part of our ongoing series of profile faculty, staff and student representatives, this month we feature Julia Farkas, BA, department secretary.
