For the second consecutive year, a Grand Rapids Community College business student has been awarded the full-ride President’s Scholarship from Davenport University. Alexi Bettig, a Rockford High School graduate, received an associate degree in arts from GRCC this past spring and qualified for the scholarship by receiving first place, along with teammate Corwin Tobias, in video production at the Business Professionals of America (BPA) National Leadership Conference in May. She also took fourth place in digital media production.

The Heritage Theatre Group to present “American Buffalo” by David Mamet

July 31, 2013;

Tomorrow August 1, The Heritage Theatre Group will light up the stage with practical lighting fixtures for “American Buffalo.” Come sit in the junk shop with Don, Teach, and Bobby as they plan a heist to steal a customer’s valuable coin collection.

… This premiere at GRCC’s Spectrum Theater (160 Fountain St. NE) of Mamet’s play is not your typical black box production. The audience is encouraged to sit in and around the junk shop with the characters, creating a theatre in the round feel.
