At the Monroe County Earth Day festival, the planet was celebrated with workshops, speakers, exhibits, children's activities, e-cycling, live music and green tours of the NCC Monroe Campus on April 23.
On April 19, preschool children at Northampton Community College's (NCC) Reibman Hall Children's Center wielded paintbrushes to color the chairs of a wheelchair red, blue, purple, and green. Then they sat in the chair and steered it over a large piece of paper on the floor, creating a multicolored design.
State Representative Steve Samuelson of Pennsylvania's 135th legislative district helped the young students at Northampton Community College's Reibman Hall Children's Center celebrate the Week of the Young Child on April 11.
Twelve students from NCC traveled to Harrisburg on April 3 to talk with state legislators about the difference that community colleges make in the lives of hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvania residents.
On April 6, NCC held its second annual Day of Service. Close to 200 NCC students, faculty and staff could be found helping out in children's centers, animal shelters, community centers, elementary schools and more throughout the Lehigh Valley and Monroe County.
Congratulations to Allison Beerwa, Irma Ortiz-Astacio, Cianael Paasewe, and Danielle Strunk. They were selected from among students at community colleges across the state as Academic All-Stars and members of the All-PA Academic Team!
