MERIDIAN —     Meridian Community College paid tribute to its own when the college hosted its annual installation of Hall of Fame members as a part of the Homecoming 2013 celebration which was held in the Dulaney Room.

    MCC alumni Robert Sanford, Jamie Bullock Cater, Nelda Joyce Frank, Joe Charles Sanders and Roscoe Jones Sr. were applauded for their achievements.

    Additionally, MCC recognized  its Talon Club members — employees who have garnered 30 years of service to the college. Honored were Sandra Cross, Associate Degree Nursing Program instructor, and Jean Willis, workforce project manager.

    MCC President Dr. Scott Elliott said the event was started 11 years ago as a way of promoting and preserving a sense of tradition at the College.

    “We house the Hall of Fame in the Dulaney Room because it is named after one of MCC’s most distinguished alumnus, Tommy Dulaney,” Elliott said.  

    Serving on the college’s Board of Trustees for more than a quarter of a century, Dulaney has given unselfishly in terms of his time and personal resource, “so it’s quite appropriate that the Hall of Fame is housed in his room,” Elliott said.
