Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Bunker Hill Community College | Office of the President

Dear BHCC Community, 

On Monday, January 16, we observe Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  For all of us, it will be a day of service, reflection, and rededication to the values of universal equality, dignity, and love that animated Dr. King’s work, and that serve as a spark and inspiration to our own.

Message from President Pam Eddinger: Shootings in California

Bunker Hill Community College | Office of the President

Dear BHCC Community,

On Sunday, my family and I began the celebration of the Lunar New Year. Just as we finished New Year’s Eve dinner on Saturday evening, we heard about the mass shooting in Monterey Park, California, a suburb of Los Angeles, often known as the city’s Second Chinatown. Ten individuals were killed, and as many wounded, all in their 50s, 60s, and 70s.  We were devastated that these elders, engaging joyfully in dance lessons and social activities, were so senselessly and brutally gunned down.

Message from President Eddinger: Wishing You a Safe and Happy Lunar New Year

Bunker Hill Community College | Office of the President

Dear BHCC Community,

On Sunday, my family and I celebrated the Lunar New Year, an observance we will share over the next two weeks with other families around the world. But this year’s New Year’s celebration was different: not long after we welcomed the Year of the Rabbit, we heard news of several mass shootings, two of those in Asian American communities in California. Those events have introduced a sadness to what ordinarily is a joyful time of year.

A Message from President Eddinger: Tyre Nichols

Bunker Hill Community College | Office of the President

Dear BHCC Community, 

Bunker Hill Community College joins those around the world outraged by the murder of Tyre Nichols by police officers in Memphis, Tennessee, earlier this month - the latest in a seemingly endless trail of harassment and killing of Black men by law enforcement in our country’s history.  The release of the officers’ body camera footage this week has brought further grief and devastation, and revealed the full brutality, racism, and lawlessness of Tyre’s killers and the systems they represent.  For Tyre’s family, friends, and all who mourn his death and celebrate his life, we hope for the healing light of justice, mercy, and peace.
