Release Date June 1

The Brookhaven College Windmill Writers’ Club has just completed its first publication, The Moulin Review. The student writers’ club has officially been in existence for only a year with Aaron Clark, communications professor, and Tina Aguilar, School of the Arts professor, serving as club sponsors. The publication includes student artwork, such as paintings, photography and drawings along with literary works ranging from creative nonfiction to poetry. The 48-page publication is expected to be printed and at the college in a few weeks.

Richard D. McCrary, interim president for Brookhaven College, spoke at a meeting of the Carrollton-Farmers Branch Rotary, May 21st, at the Brookhaven Country Club. He shared the latest information on the college’s bond programs, employee and student community service activities as well as new efforts for student retention programs. In addition, Dr. McCrary focused on the college’s efforts to expand recruiting in the communities in the 75220 zip codes with an emphasis on the educational and economic challenges of that area. The Rotary Club of Carrollton-Farmers Branch has had a long relationship with the college, supporting students almost each year with scholarship funds.

Joy Bailey, professor of cultural studies and program director for Workforce and Continuing Education Division at Brookhaven College, was invited to speak at the Seoul Institute of the Arts in Seoul, Korea. She was in Korea for a two-week vacation visiting family. While there, she was introduced to Jae Soh, the director of the Art and Technology Center at the Seoul Institute of the Arts, who invited her to come and speak to 40 art students. She gave a presentation, “Continuing Education in a Global Society,” which focused on encouraging students to consider their future education and the importance of cultural research for their future careers. The thank-you note she received from Soh thanked her for “taking the time to come to our college to present a thought-provoking and dynamic learning experience for our students.”
