Dear Faculty and Staff:

On Wednesday, Oct. 7, Governor Parson held a press conference in which he provided some unanticipated news. He is approving a partial release of the withholds in 2020 for community colleges and universities. According to the Missouri Office of Administration, net revenue collections for September increased by 3.0 percent as compared to September 2019.

tbt10.21.20Also on Oct. 7, our Nursing and Allied Health programs partnered with the St. Charles County Health Department, BJC, SSM, Cottleville Fire
Rescue, and several other organizations to host, on campus, the Flunk the Flu Drive-Thru Clinic. The response to this event was greater than any of us anticipated. More than 1,600 vaccines were administered to the community and 23,500 free masks were distributed. As Provost Koehler commented, “Despite these uncertain times, SCC came together, honored our mission, and demonstrated our ability to support the needs of our own community.” My appreciation is extended to everyone who helped the Flunk the Flu event succeed.
