MCC End of Year Luncheon

27 May



The MCC end of year luncheon was a fun way to get all faculty/staff from across the college together before summer break. The MCCFSA provided Mugshots for lunch, and our very own eLearning Resource Specialist, Brandon Walker, sported his new Canvas LMS shirt. He received lots of compliments on it and it helped get faculty excited about our transition to Canvas.
