News Channel 34 : BCC and CHOW

From BCC:

Broome Community College President Dr. Kevin Drumm reminded students, faculty, staff and community members that the College’s Alternative Spring Break will take place throughout our community on April 5th-9th, 2010.

The Spring Break Challenge is a week long program sponsored by the BCC Service Learning Program and challenges students to use spring break as a time to make a difference in their community.

“The program provides college students with the chance to do organized volunteer work in their respective communities,” said Dr. Drumm. “Many students are choosing not to spend their spring break on vacation and have expressed an interest in community service, and I applaud them for their commitment to our community. This is the third year the College is offering an alternative spring and the response has been impressive.”
