News at Brookhaven College

Release Date Oct. 22, 2007

Theatre Brookhaven opened its fall season with the classic Molière comedy, “Tartuffe,” directed by Darise Error, drama professor. For more than 330 years, “Tartuffe,” has had audiences laughing at common human frailty and false religious fervor. Tartuffe is the story of a hypocrite who will either be rewarded for his con game or get the comeuppance he richly deserves. All the comedy happens as the audience waits to find out. Shows will continue through Oct. 27.

Kevin Hurst, academic advisor and coach, coordinated a special FAN JAM event. The Brookhaven Bears Basketball team used the event to kick-off their season and showcase the team’s talent. A free-throw contest got the fans involved with college prizes for the winners.

The Brookhaven Community-Service Project Committee coordinated a “Letters for the Troops” event October 19th. Employees came and went from the event, enjoying a card-decorating contest, a potluck lunch and recognition of 31 military veterans employed at Brookhaven College . Nita Drescher, developmental reading professor, encouraged employees to take part and helped bring together supplies for the letters. Categories for best cards included most patriotic, best holiday theme, best get well (some cards are sent to Germany to a hospital where the wounded first arrive), and best card submitted by a child age 10 or younger. Items will go to the Letters from Home Organization, which creates packages for individuals and ships the contributions overseas.
