Bodenheimer Sets New Collegiate Record
Second-year MCC Forestry student Wesley Bodenheimer set a new national collegiate record for the stock saw at the 2019 Stihl U.S. Championship in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the end of July. Wesley was a wildcard participant in the nationals as a result of taking a strong 3rd place - only two points behind the winner - in the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Qualifier last March.
Wesley placed 5th overall in the U.S. Championship where he competed in three additional events including the underhand chop, the standing block chop, and the single buck saw. Wesley is only the second MCC student ever to compete in the U.S. collegiate competition. The first was Matt Slingerland, the son of Mike Slingerland, who is Wesley's coach. Matt and Mike are both professional timbersports competitors.

What's a Lactation Room?
A lactation room is a private space where a nursing mother can express breast milk for her baby. The room has been provided by a grant with help from Sandhills Center Family Support and Community Collaboration.
Instructors and students who are nursing mothers are invited to use the room as needed. The room is located in Capel Hall in the library.
