  • BCC student works on grounds...

     Most college students spend their summers working odd jobs and taking their free time with their toes in the sand.

    Chase Bell, a student in Brunswick Community College’s horticulture and turfgrass management program, spent at least part of his summer shagging fly balls from major leaguers and hamming it up with the likes of New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge.

    Bell, a 25-year-old from Georgia who’s been in the BCC turfgrass program for one year, applied for an internship during the 2017 spring semester to work in Jupiter, Fla., for the summer.

     By her own admission, part of Alicia Johnson’s heart is in the Dominican Republic.

     You’ve seen the posts on Facebook. It’s a list of questions and you’re asked to copy and paste, then re-post with your own answers. I finally completed one of those posts a couple of nights ago and one question stuck out like a sore thumb. No, not the question about being kissed under fireworks, but this one, “What’s your favorite season?”
