President James Mabry and Provost Phil Sisson took time to recognize the student scholars among the athletes as well. "Games, practices and meetings take up quite a bit of time.  Put this together with the time commitment every student must make to be successful, and you really have a full plate.  I truly believe in the phrase “student athlete," said Sisson. "These athletes are students first, and that is the expectation at Middlesex.  Every day, each semester, our students come to class, do homework, and work part-time or even full-time jobs.  Many struggle with personal, physical and emotional obstacles.  In addition to this, we encourage students to “get involved”, and our sports teams are just one of the many sources for involvement.  Sports teams foster a sense of community, camaraderie, and commitment."
 
Academic All Stars with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher were David Salama, Jordan Phathanak, Daniel Dykstra, Disneldy Fernandez, Blaise Msafiri, Bryan Janeczo, Stacy Craig, Corey Goggin, Wilgen Garcia-Cruz, Julie You, Christopher DeOliveria, Dhairya Mehta, Selina Wedding Christopher Natale, Zaid Saleem, Ismael Ouattara, Michaely Chea, Sarah Greeley, Bryant Sanchez, Anthony Perez-Rodriguez, Aditya Samson, Wilfri Duarte, Levi Gomes, and Kristen Padgett, 

Scholar Athletes with a GPA of 3.5 of higher were Guillermo Blanco, Paige Choate, Kathryn MacDonald, Henning Hoenne, Sopheark Mith, Nelson Guevara, Juliano DaRosa, Alexandre DeOleveira, David Short, and Ramiro Najarro Carpio.

A Strong MCC Accounting at DECA

Middlesex students Daniel Iknaian of Waltham and Stephen Collins ot Tyngsboro traveled recently to Washington DC to compete in the Collegiate DECA championships.

There were over 1,500 finalists who had won their regional competitions from two and four-year colleges across the nation who attended the DECA conference and championship.

Representing MCC, Daniel took home three medals by placing in the Top 10 in all three categories of the competition - written exam, case study and presentation - in the accounting category.  Making Daniel's accomplishment even more notable, he competed against 60 regional finalists from across the country, the majority of whom were college seniors who will be graduating with a bachelor's degree in Accounting this month.. 

Stephen won 2 medals in the preliminary rounds, and then won an additional gold medal and placed third in the championship round in Marketing Management. There were more than 120 regional finalists in this category, so to stand out among his peers and place 3rd in this extremely expansive field is quite a tribute to how well Stephen performed in his final presentation round, not to mention the work our outstanding faculty do in the classrooms.

Give them both a well deserved DECA  round of applause!
