Dennis was selected to be the head shop foreman for his class. He enjoys assisting and teaching other students with every project. Congratulations Dennis!
The Collision Repair and Refinishing class wrapped a sign for our parade float. The wrap was created by using our vinyl printer. The same method is used to wrap cars which is the practice of covering a vehicle’s original paint with a vinyl wrap of a different color or finish.
Mr. Sherman, Collision Repair and Refinishing Instructor, teaches his first year students how to weld. Students take turns forming a weld bead. Students also sand down a golf cart in order to prepare the surface for painting.
Collision Repair and Refinishing students learn to make cuts with one of the many metal working tools used in the collision industry. Students sand body filler as a process in a project. Dennis Coleman a Farrell Senior mixes paint to be sprayed in the paint booth.
Program highlights for this week are coming from the Collision Repair and Refinishing class. First year students are learning and practicing how to use power tools within the shop area. Students are also working in the paint booth implementing what they have learned. Great Job!

Our Early Childhood Education class is having a fantastic first week learning new things and exploring, whether they are in the classroom or outside. Everyone is having a great time! This is the perfect program to consider if pursuing a career in Education.
The first day of preschool for our students was great for our preschool and high school students. This can be a scary time for a preschooler but our students, as teachers, were involved and engaged in activities throughout the day with the preschoolers. This was a great day!
Our Early Childhood Education class welcomes parents and preschoolers to MCCC for Preschool Open House. Preschool children experienced circle time, play, and snack. Our high school students are excited for class this year. Welcome to MCCC!!
