Raider Salute to Jim Keating

This comes to us from Laurie Chesley:

“A Raider Salute is due to Jim Keating, GRCC Photography Instructor. Jim was one of the GRCC attendees at last Friday night’s NAACP Freedom Fund Banquet, and when sponsors of the event found themselves without a photographer, Jim contacted a former student, who came to the event to serve in that key role. Jim’s speedy assistance garnered GRCC a public thank-you!”
