Car wash raises money for needy

Katie Freeland

Staff Warrm

Twelve students washed
cars in the cold winter weather
oh Sunday, Dec. 7 to help raise
money to get gifts for families
who might not have the money
for Christmas presents.

JT Cinquemani, a sopho-
more accounting major, had
the idea to help out a family
during this holiday season. He

was inspired by his dirty truck,
and thought it would be a cool
idea to do a car wash in the
winter and put the proceeds
toward a good cause. He said
it would catch people's at-
tention because it's such cold
weather. He told some of his
friends about his idea and the
"Winter Wonder Wash" came

"I'm having fun here, and

it's rewarding when you're
thinking about others,"
Cinquemani said. "That's what
life is all about."

While listening to a techno
version of "Jingle Bells" in the
side parking lot of the Dol-
lar Tree, the students washed

The many changes seen this

Mocnik came to Southern
from his position as library di-
rector at Mt. Aloysius College
in Pennsylvania. He got his
undergraduate and master's
degrees in England and a doc-
torate in history from Bowling
Green State University.

Frank Di Memmo, media
librarian, was on the commit-
tee to select a new director.
He commented on Mocnik's
enthusiasm during the inter-

"I sensed an excitement
that I thought he would bring,
which is exactly what he has
done," Di Memmo said.

The library's three-year
renovation plan was already in
its second year when Mocnik
arrived, but several modifica-
tions were made at his rec-
ommendation. Mocnik envi-
sioned the library as a place for
presentations to take place.

The new library commons,
already used for three presen-
