As his father, longtime Coach and Associate Professor Bob Gould retires after a 43-year career, Dr. David Gould ’12 is just starting his own. The licensed chiropractor and acupuncturist has opened his own practice, combining modalities from two distinct disciplines for a unique type of therapy. “Having the freedom to practice in my own style is a great feeling. Chiropractic and acupuncture works — especially when done in conjunction.”

MVCC Associate Professor and longtime Men's Soccer Coach Bob Gould has retired after 43 years serving as a knowledgeable instructor, mentor, and role model for his students, athletes, and colleagues, as well as the local community. "Every team has something special. There are so many great stories. ... Certainly, you get inspired by the game-winning goals, but to have athletes come back and tell you that you were the guy who turned their life around is really heartwarming."
