10/26/11: Word Puzzle sent to employees without access to email
In an effort to include all employees in the education process for the upcoming HLC team visit, we are initiating a special edition of the Word Puzzle Wednesday and Trivia Thursdays for those employees who do not have consistent access to email.  

As a supervisor of these employees, we ask you to print out copies of the attached game and distribute them to just the employees without email access.  The game will have instructions on how to play, the deadline for submitting a completed entry and how the raffle will work.  The prize?  An SCC T-shirt!

Thanks for helping us communicate the value of the self-study process and information about the upcoming HLC visit while having a little fun.
