Congratulations to Dave Custer, GRCC 2010 Distinguished Alumni! On Thursday, April 29th, a small group of Dave’s family gathered to celebrate. We even had a few unexpected guests that joined us out on the Heritage patio. Congratulations Dave!
The Ford Fieldhouse and Natatorium facilities will be on a two hour opening delay on Friday, May 7, 2010 as maintenance work needs to be done that will involve a complete power shut down. The facility will not open until 7:00 a.m. on this day. Those who make use of the fitness center during the early morning hours will need to make alternative arrangements on this day. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The GRCC Golf Team won the MCCAA State Championship for the second year in a row. The team shot a 54 hole total of 876 to win by sixteen strokes.
