Former MCC Employees Reunite

Meridian Community College's historical committee honored former college employees at a luncheon Friday.

Officials said close to 150 former staffers and retirees showed up for the event.

MCC is hosting a series of special events this year as it marks its 75th anniversary.

2012 retiree Wilhelmine Damon said the reunion was a treat for one and all.

"If you could be here and watch them as they come through that door and see people that they have not seen in a long time, and people they've worked with," said Damon. "And when you work with someone you get to know them pretty well, and it's fun just watching the people."

Damon said a lot of planning went into the process of reuniting this many people from MCC and the former Meridian Junior College.
