Kim Silva-Martinez was presented the Recent Alumna of the Year Award at the Middlesex County College Alumni Association dinner meeting in June. The award is given annually to a graduate of the past 10 years. Ms. Silva-Martinez, who graduated from MCC in 2014 with highest honors, earned two degrees: journalism and English. She transferred to Montclair State University, where she is majoring in English. She has maintained her allegiance to Middlesex, assisting with several Alumni Association projects. In addition, she wrote a book to celebrate Middlesex County College’s 50th anniversary. The work, called “endless possibilities: Middlesex County College 1964-2014,” chronicles the life of the College over its history. In addition, she created a display of photos and artifacts for the College’s fundraising gala and community celebration this spring.
