The 1965 Pyramid Staff wishes to dedicate the yearbook to the Mt. Vernon
Community College students because they make our college what it is.
Our students fill our school with their hope, pride, longing, dreams, laughter,
worry, and desire. The yearbook has strived to record merely a small portion of the
emotions, of the students, of the school.
These memories, this school, the yearbook, and all that these things stand for
are yours - Community College Students.
