Meet Montgomery C. Raptor, aka Monty

Monty and Dr. CainCampaign season kicked off in September—to name the MC mascot. The month-long social media campaign conducted by MC’s marketing department drew enthusiastic—and creative—responses from the MC community. Acting President Stephen Cain selected the winning name(s): “Montgomery C. Raptor,” submitted by Alejandra Borja, a current MC student, and nickname, “Monty,” submitted by Dr. Jamin Bartolomeo, collegewide dean for student access and Germantown Campus dean of student affairs. “We received more than 250 original entries, and many duplicates,” says Stephanie Gallo Krasnoff, marketing specialist. “Our engagement levels—likes, shares, and reposts—were 10 times higher than our normal amount.” Dr. Cain made the final announcement at the women’s volleyball game on October 8 at the Rockville Campus.
