The kids with a sweet tooth were also able to get in line for trick or trunk where MGCCC employees waiting in the back of their decorated cars to give out candy to all the kids waiting. Math Instructor Kaitlyn Norton Parker said, “We’ve heard such incredible things about how this is for the community and we wanted to be a part of it and kind of give back to the area and see some of our students outside of the classroom. It’s really cool too.”

Math Instructor Taylor Bendell said, “A lot of our students come and have kids and stuff. We have a lot of non-traditional students, so it’s really cool to see students and their kids alone, so it’s just a lot of fun.”

This is the eighth year the college has held the festival.
