Fall Welcome Back Ceremony
The College's Welcome Back Ceremony will be held August 20 from 7:45 - 10:30 AM in the Fine Arts Auditorium.
Tonight's agenda includes acceptance of an "oil on canvas" painting titled "Fitted" from Dr. and Mrs. Galen Etemad, the couple who sold SCC the initial property for the Oviedo Campus. This abstract painting was done by Mrs. Etamad. It seems that they were very concerned about the preservation of the natural environment. When they visited the campus recently, they were thrilled to see that the environment had been protected and thought that the buildings were a perfect fit. If the Board accepts this painting, it will be placed in the library at the Oviedo Campus with a small plaque of tribute underneath it.
