As faculty and students congregated amongst each other in a lively environment, Professor Alan Mitnick provided a beautiful performance with live music. An arrangement of refreshments were offered as well.


The Teacher Excellence Project is a program a part of a Title IV grant currently in its 3rd of 5th year. This project focuses on promoting student retainment in order to ensure graduation. This also supports faculty in professional development by hosting workshops to help support teachers.


Project Coordinator Tanya Da Silva highlighted, “This is a celebration of the culmination of what we can offer here at the college.”

In support of the cause, students of Professor Mark Hilringhouse’s online Photography class generously donated some of their pieces. One of the participating students in attendance, Sara Savage, spoke of the experience photographing.

“I only started photographing in September. This piece was randomly taken a trip to NYC with my family.”


The talent and works of students speak to the dedication of the professors at PCCC makes for a fruitful environment where both parties can thrive. There is no doubt about how far one can go when feeling the support of their peers and their instructors.
