Greetings from the Cape May County Campus–Oct. 27, 2017

Submitted by Dr. Tammy DeFranco

Dr. Tammy DeFranco, director of CMCC, and Wendy Gray, program officer, have been presenting many career workshops to students. Students stated that the workshops have been informative and have learned that there are many choices for them as well as finding out which degree is going to help towards their career goals.

Dr. Tammy DeFranco would like to give a special thank you to Cape Assist and their information table and clothesline project for Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Awareness.

Clothesline Projects all over the world remind people of the real meaning of violence statistics that are often ignored. It originated in Hyannis, Massachusetts in 1990 when a member of the Cape Cod’s Women’s Defense Agenda learned that during the same time 58,000 soldiers were killed in the Vietnam War, 51,000 U.S. women were killed by the men who claimed to love them. http://clotheslineproject.info/ Continue reading
