“The Ketcham Community Center has had a significant impact in 21 years to NCMC and the surrounding communities with the numerous events and activities held there every year”, commented NCMC Director of Development Alicia Endicott.  “KCC is host to thousands of visitors to NCMC and Trenton, and we are excited to show everyone all of the improvements.”  The recent upgrades to KCC began early summer and were completed the beginning of September.  Aside from new paint, window and wall decorations, new motorized telescopic bleachers are a major change to the auditorium.  

“I am very pleased with all that we have been able to do to enhance the Ketcham Community Center for students, members, and the community,” commented KCC Director Nate Gamet.  “Visitors of all ages will enjoy the new bleachers and seeing past and current Pirates in the new wall clings.”
