Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders Heritage Month
May 1, 2018
MCC kicked off a month of celebrating Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders with an award ceremony, the theme of which was "Resilience and Resistance: Leadership and Cultural Pride." Three awards in honor of notable Asian Americans were given - to a member of MCC's faculty/staff, to an MCC student and to a member of the larger MCC community. Following the ceremony, a screening of Angelina Jolie's 2017 historical film, First They Killed My Father, based on the memoir by Luong Ung, a survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, took place.
