During the past year Southwestern Community College has awarded 303 General Education diplomas and 13 Adult High School diplomas. On Aug. 7, a ceremony was held to honor the most recent graduates. Dr. Don Tomas, SCC College President, congratulated the students and handed out certificates.
The speaker for the evening was Ceretta Davis, SCC Culinary Program Coordinator and Instructor. Davis spoke to students about her own experience earning a GED from Southwestern before returning to earn a Degree in Culinary Arts. She encouraged all graduates to continue their education. “Your education is really important. It helps shape your future and makes you more employable in the job market,” says Davis.
