A Message from Student Affairs VP Ron Smith


On behalf of the men’s and women’s basketball teams, we would like to thank each and everyone one of you for your tremendous support of our teams this past season.


We have had an increase in student, faculty staff and administration participation all year! This was especially noticeable during the MD JUCO Conference Tournament Championships. Both the men’s and women’s teams were victorious and named the new champions, in front of a capacity crowd – by far the largest crowed we’ve had for a women’s home game in many years. During the Region Championship game in Hagerstown last week, the men’s team had more fans in the crowd than the home team. Your support was also evident during the District Championship – we cannot express how exciting it was to have a full bus take BCCC fans more than four hours away to the game in New York.


We have been incredibly proud to represent BCCC – not only during these games, but throughout the entire season. Thank you for all of your support! We appreciate you all. See you next season!



Environmental Science Club Will Revitalize Trinity Gardens


With the approach of spring, Professors Wendweson Fikire and Richard Danforth - and student members of the BCCC 2014 Environmental Science Club (pictured yesterday with Professor Fikire) - will revitalize Trinity Gardens, the special community reflective place and garden path established by the former owners of Liberty West, Bon Secours Baltimore Health System, to commemorate the old Provident and Lutheran Hospitals, Liberty Medical Center and all who built them.


The spot represents an ideal setting for environmental education and remediation as well as a visible opportunity to improve community aesthetics and goodwill. The place features a small goldfish pool still inhabited by several live goldfish, a stream and donated paving stones and park benches. As part of the College’s acquisition of the property in 2011, BCCC pledged to honor the historical significance and beauty of the garden, and work to ensure its preservation.
