Five Branford residents, Eric Accardi, Michael Antonetti, Colin Cunningham, Michael Orts, and Adam Williams, were named to the Middlesex Community College “Dean’s List” for high academic achievement during the last term. To make the list, students achieved a grade point average of more than 3.7 for all courses taken during the spring 2012 semester.
“We know our students work hard for each grade, and the Dean’s List is one formal way to recognize their outstanding academic achievement,” said Dr. Anna Wasescha, MxCC president. “Our instructors have set high expectations and developed challenging course content, so earning these grades takes dedication, commitment and vigor. We are impressed with their efforts, and congratulate each student on their success.”
