I hope your summer is off to a great start! It's really hot outside so I hope you are staying cool at the pool or on the beach. Things are heating up at DCCC as well in anticipation of the fall semester with lots of great programs and evening and Saturday options to continue learning and growing. Keep looking at the website for news and events. 
We need You!
The Alumni Association is looking for 30 volunteers to share their stories with students this fall. The plan is for students to be paired with alumni who are working in careers that students are currently pursuing at DCCC. All it requires is 10-15 minutes on the phone with a student to answer questions about your job and how DCCC helped you achieve your dream or position. The students will write a paper based on the interview as their first assignment in Mrs. Susan Scarboro's class this fall.  
This is intended to give students an idea of what to look out for during their college years and what jobs may be like once they graduate or move on to other colleges. Was there something you wish you had known when you were starting your college career at DCCC? Please lend a helping hand to those following your path by emailing me your name, phone number, email and job title or area of work. jerri_russell@davidsonccc.edu 
Come out to Wine Down Friday
Join members of the DCCC Alumni Association on Friday, July 25th at the Weathervane Winery in Welcome. Admission is $5.00 per person unless you are a Wine Club member. Bring your chair and a picnic or snack to enjoy with a bottle of Weathervane wine as we listen to the music of Mark Tuttle and Boogie Nights. Who knows we might do a little dancing too! 
This is a great opportunity to meet your classmates, do some catching up and have a wonderful time in a beautiful setting. Alumni will sit together as a group so wear your DCCC shirt with pride.
