Parent Weekend at the Brevard Center took place on October 8th and 9th. The Friday program opened with a welcome from Joan Williamson, Program Director. Jodie Pierce, Student Senate Advisor, introduced the recently elected Student Senate members: Moultrie Woodall, President, Zachary Smuckler, Vice President, Dodge Meadows, Secretary-Treasurer, and Andrew Maris, Senator at Large.
Following the introductions, Dr. Michael McManmon presented a national update that included information about the College Support Program.
After lunch, Sharona Sommer, Head Advisor, spoke about the spring break trip. This year the trip will be an eight-day Caribbean cruise on the Carnival Dream. Our guest speaker, Kyle Hasbrouck, System Specialist at Wuesthoff Medical Center, spoke about working with interns and answered questions from the audience. Finally, student speakers Charlie Nielsen, Dane Sampath, and Zachary Smuckler spoke eloquently about their experiences at CIP.
After the program ended, a wine and cheese party was held for parents and staff. It was a great way to wind down after a busy day. Saturday began with workshops to keep parents updated on the current curriculum. This was followed by the 5th Annual CIP Family Bowling Tournament. Congratulations to Andrew Maris, student winner, and Richard Morgan, parent winner.
Thanks to everyone for making Parent Weekend 2010 such a great success.
