Office of the President March 1976 



To the Class of '76, 

I know that for many of you it has been a long, hard 
journey since beginning your studies at Roxbury Conmunity 
College. Self-pride and scholastic achievement are charac- 
teristics which you, the faculty and staff have worked hard 
to establish as the hallmark of Roxbury Community College. 

As you leave, you are facing an ever-changing world, 
which at times may seem hard; but given the excellent train- 
ing which you have received at this institution, I am confi- 
dent that you will succeed. Your perserverence, efforts and 
enthusiasm have not gone unnoticed. You have set your goals 
and followed through; for this, I am very proud. 

Many of you will transfer to the upper division at other 
institutions of higher learning while others pursue careers in 
your chosen field. Whichever choice is yours, I know that you 
will look back with pride and a sense of acconplishment to the 
days you spent at Roxbury Ccxnmunity College. 

I wish you continued success, health and happiness. 



Ma^rr-iM-^-^^M. 



President 



A Massachusetts Regional Community College

Having faith in the fundamental decency of one's fellowmen, 
with the crowd yet not following the crowd, empathy, farsightedness, 
and dedication, I believe, are the principles of survival and growth 
for the pioneers of Roxbiiry Community College. 

During these past two and half years, it has been heart-warmiinj 
to see that what may be "an impossible dream" to many others has 
come to a reality. Many ingenious methods of settling differences 

have been uncovered, experimented, and perhaps succeeded. Many 
heartbreaks have some experienced; yet learned that life must go on 

and never to loose pride in one's self. Many exainples of'that unfailing 

credo that- -opportunities are always open to those v/ho never give 

up trying --have one witnessed. 

Granted, some may say that RCC is no longer an infant. 
Seemingly ostracized, yet gaining grounds in society. Still, 
the future of RCC is unlimited and let us jointly open that road. 

--by Pang -ling Ting 



( It has been an honor to be an advisor of the 
Yearbook Committee; also, Miss Cecelia Eaves' 
dedication and spirit remain much to be emulated. )

Express Yourself Teams 



By Edgar Ward 

Boston's black communities 
have produced some of New 
England's finest atheletes. 
Jimmy Walker, Owen Wells, and 
Russ Lee are just a few of the 
youngmen that ha ve strived to be 
among the best atheletes in the 
country. Roxbury Community 
College has strived to live up to 
this tradition. It boasts the only 
minority team in New England. 

The R.CC. EXPRESS, as both 
teams are called, has just 
finished it's first organized 
season. Although efforts were 
inade to develop an atheletic 
program when the college first 
opened, poor planning and lack of 
interest thwarted any progress. 
When the program was finally 
developed under the guidance of 
Ml-. Willie Booker last year, the 
Express was on it's way and 
roiling... fast. 

It will also interest you to know 
that Pres. Walter Smith, the then 
new president, was as in- 
strumental as Mr. Booker was in 
bringing an atiieletic program to 
iahf at R rr 



in Its iirst season the Express 
finished the year with an out- 
standing 15-3 record. The squad 
was comprised of the elite in 
basketball that Roxbury had to 
offer. This, coupled with the high 
caliber recruits specially im- 
ported from Atlanta, made that 
season one of the most 
memorable accomplishments of 
the 74-75 school year. 

In view of the success of the 
first season's record, Coach 
Booker made applications to the 
National Junior College Con- 
ference. Upon the teams ac- 
ceptance, the fruition of the only 
all minority team in New 
England came into existance. 
Another first that was made was 
the formation of a women's 
basketball team, as equally 
talentedas the men's team. Both 
teams had successful seasons 
this year. The men's team 
rounded out this season with a 19- 
4 record, and the women's with a 
18.5 record. 




With, the internationality of the 
college goes an international 
taste in sports. So why not have a 
soccer team? We do. A 
revitalized interest arose in 
soccer this school year and Mr. 
Booker rose to the occasion with 
a short but very sweet schedule 
for the brotherswho would rather 
kick than dribble. Five games 
were played and out of them the 
Express a la foot finished with a 
4-1 record. 

The coaches and players at 
Roxbury Community College 
havealottobeproudof. Those of 
us who have been to any of the 
games that these teams have 
played will probably agree that 
the Express has lived up to the 
tradition of the atheletic dynasty 
that lives in our community. The 
students here at R.CC. should "oe 
just as proud to be represented by 
the young men and women who 
made this season a successful 
one, but let us not stop at being 
proud. 

As the only all minority teams 
in any league, support from the 
people that you are representing 
is an essential part of the game 
that helps when the last seconds 
of the game are ticking away. 

Let us not stop and be satisfied 
with having only a basketball and 
soccer tear-^ to display the talent 
that lies dormant in the lounges 
and hallways. If there is an in- 
terest in Softball, let it be known. 
If there is an interest in tennis, let 
it be knowTi. When the Express 
rolls for the 76-77 season there 
will be no stone left unturned by 
the throng of men and women 
that will dedicate their time and 
effort to making the atheletic 
programs at R.CC. something 
viable and consistent with the 
{Toud heritage that those before 
them have left for us to bare.
