Patsy Zettler had no intention of completing a college degree when she registered for a film history class at SCC. 

“I just took the class because I was interested in history,” said Patsy. “I already had a career going so college didn’t seem necessary at the time.”

She ended up loving her class and decided to pursue a degree.

“During my time at SCC I was working and had four kids,” said Patsy. “I really enjoyed school, because it was something I was doing for myself. I took pride in that.”

She graduated from SCC with an Associate of Arts transfer degree. Thanks to her active role in Phi Theta Kappa honor society, Patsy used a transfer scholarship to go on to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees in communications at Webster University.

Her growing passion for higher education eventually landed her a job at Ranken Technical College. “I started as a teacher and now, seven years later, I’m the general education division head.”

“I love working in higher education because I feel like I’m doing something important,” she said. “I teach students skills they need to be successful in life.”
