Tuesday Touch Bases

Dear Faculty and Staff:

It is difficult to believe that the end of the semester has arrived. I hope that you will be able to join us for Commencement at 10 a.m. in the gymnasium. Our Commencement Speaker for this year is Commissioner Zora Mulligan. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the success of students and faculty.

Last week we celebrated the purchase of our Center for Healthy Living with a dedication ceremony. It was inspiring to see how many of our community members participated in the ceremony and tour of the building. Thank you to the faculty and staff who helped coordinate an amazing dedication ceremony. The new space will serve our community and college well.

Who’s Who Diversity in Color released “Saluting Diversity in Higher Education” on May 3. I was honored to be recognized in the issue as a Higher Education Diversity Champion, along with other college and university CEOs. I’m proud of the work we do to continue moving toward an environment that fosters diversity and inclusion.

PERSONNEL

I had an opportunity to attend a retirement party for Professor Joyce Lindstrom, SCC math professor. The college is thankful for your extraordinary 30 years of service to our students and our college. I wish you a joyful retirement.
