Presidential Report December 4, 2007
Please join me in thanking Dean Lynn Colon and her staff for their flexibility and assistance in getting the Altamonte Campus ready for tonight's Board meeting. The building looks terrific! And we are already registering students for 2008!!!
Roland Rodriguez is an incredible SCC success story. He dropped out of high school and had given up on school altogether. He eventually enrolled in our GED program and completed his GED. He is the first person in his family to enroll in college. When he started at SCC, Roland tested in the lowest percentile in math. Undaunted, and with the dream to become a "rocket scientist," Roland was influenced by great instructors at SCC and has now been accepted to the Aerospace Engineering Program at the University of Florida - a program that is ranked in the top 20 in the nation! Congratulations to Roland and to the faculty who influenced him!
Author Robin Lippincott, an SCC graduate and Lake Mary native, visited SCC last Thursday and read from his new novel "In the Meantime." Lippincott is on a book tour promoting the novel, which traces the intertwined lives of three friends for six decades from a small Midwestern town to Manhattan. Lippincott, who now resides in Cambridge, Mass., teaches in the MFA Writing program at Spaulding University and Harvard University.
