Portions of the ATC ramp will be closed for fire sprinkler repairs starting Monday, June 10. The work will close various sections of the ramp as they move through the entire ramp for the project. The planned starting portion of the ramp is the entire East half at this point in time, although the piping may require changes in work area plans. Approximately half the ramp will remain open for parking during this time. The parking gate inside the ramp will be opened during the project, which will take three to four weeks for completion.
Congratulations to Anne Sherman, professor and counselor in Disability and Occupational Support Services, for receiving the Margaret A. Chmieleewski Ph.D. Memorial Award!
The award was given to Sherman for her “outstanding lifelong leadership, warm sense of humor, commitment, support of the Disability community, and the pursuit of personal development in post-secondary education.” This award is given by the Michigan Association of Higher Education and Disability, for which she has served as a board member for two years. Anne has proudly represented our GRCC family for over 30 years. Cheers to Anne!
The Grand Rapids Chapter of Sweet Adelines presented the highly prestigious award of Sweet Adeline of the Year Award to Rockford resident Colleen Pierson, an adjunct in the Language and Thought Department. The singing group is composed of 60 women who sing four-part harmony in acapella style.
The award is given to a member who exemplifies the ideal qualities shown through leadership, successes, progress and dedication.
“To be nominated was extraordinary, to win was a dream come true. I felt like I won an Academy Award,” Pierson said.
Master Director Denise Van Dyken was happy for Pierson: “Colleen brings so much enthusiasm, talents and humor to our group. It is a well-deserved honor.”
The Grand Rapids Chapter of Sweet Adelines are Regional Champions and will compete on the International Stage in New Orleans in September. They perform at community events, concerts, competitions, charity functions and sing the National Anthem at sporting games.
“The only thing better than singing, is more singing,” said Pierson. “One of my best life decisions was getting involved with this talented group of women.”
