Large group of "Outstanding Women Award" recipients from 2018 standing outside the Student Center, smiling, some holding their certificates

Forty-four of Sacramento City College’s women students have been recognized for their perseverance in continuing their education despite personal challenges.

The “Outstanding Women Student” award recipients and their friends, families, counselors and others who have supported them were treated to a lunch on March 23 at the SCC campus.

The honorees were selected for their outstanding academic achievement, maintaining a 3.5 GPA or higher, while excelling in community service, venturing into traditionally male-dominated careers or gaining recognition in athletics — all while overcoming personal obstacles.
