Community Service is Key Theme of New OCC Founders' Day Celebration

With the theme “A Tradition of Excellence,” OCC will observe its first annual Founders’ Day celebration on Tuesday, March 19.  The purpose of the event is to honor the public spirit and contributions of those who established the college and set it on the path the success it enjoys today.

A major feature of the month’s celebration will be a Community Service Competition for students and employees designed to honor OCC’s founders and their commitment to our community.  Participants will complete a minimum of 4 hours of community service, to be entered on a special Community Service Form.

The three top employee earners will be honored on Excellence Day, and the three top student earners at Honors Convocations.  Specially-designed pins will also be awarded for 4, 20 and 40 hours of service during the month of March.
Other planned activities include highlights of the lives of those who played critical roles in the college’s establishment, such as OCC “Founding Father” George Mosher (March 19 is Mr. Mosher’s birthday), Charter Board members Lila Johnson and Fred Chapman, and the college’s first president, John Tirrell.
Additional highlights include celebratory cakes at each campus on March 19, the airing of recorded interviews with personalities who played a role in the college’s establishment, displays and PowerPoint presentations.
