SCC RADIO JINGLE
Our new radio jingle is about to be unveiled. I sincerely want to thank Jeannie Ender, Elizabeth Prange and Jody Bloemke who served on the taskforce to update our college jingle. For the first time, SCC will also have a Spanish version of our jingle available for use on several area Spanish radio stations.

TECHNOLOGY SHOWCASE – TOUR OF MANUFACTURING SCC
participated in the Tour of Manufacturing through Greater Mankato Growth and the Faribault Area Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, October 25th. SCC’s Faribault Campus hosted a luncheon and panel discussion followed by a tour of our Computer Integrated Machining Department and local manufacturing facilities. This event was extremely successful and helped to expose high school students and community members to the great jobs available in manufacturing and the education available at SCC. I wish to thank our engaged faculty members who provided such amazing displays and our enthusiastic student affairs staff that acted as our tour guides.
