To kick off their annual enrollment drive for the 2013-2014 school year, the staff at the Michael Berry Career Center are hosting a Spring Open House and Spaghetti Dinner. The event will take place at the MBCC from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 14.
Families of Dearborn Public School students who will be in grades 10, 11 or 12 next year are invited to come have dinner, tour the facility, meet the staff and learn more about the college and career training opportunities offered by the center.
The Michael Berry Career Center is located in Dearborn Heights, and is part of the Dearborn Public Schools system. It offers a variety of college credit and certification opportunities to DPS students, including health services, information technology and hospitality services. Students spend a half day at the MBCC and a half day at their home school. Bus transportation is provided.
The spaghetti dinner is being held as a fundraiser for MBCC students’ community service project, Kids Against Hunger. Proceeds will be used by MBCC students to package meals for distribution to over 10,000 needy families.
Pre-sale tickets for the event are $5.50 and available at the MBCC. Tickets will be $6 at the door and will last until the spaghetti runs out.
MBCC staff and students will be available at the center during and after dinner to provide tours of the facility, talk about their classes and answer questions about the programs at the MBCC. Current MBCC students and alumni will be present to demonstrate what they learn in class and talk about the MBCC experience. There will also college representatives available to talk about college credit opportunities available to MBCC students.
