Husham Haroun unveiled a student mural on Dec. 12 created thanks to one of the SCC Centennial mini-grants. Husham and Henry Fisk were the main contributors to the mural that saw about 10 students of the SCC Art Club spend the better part of a year working on the project, both on campus and off.
One portion of the mural depicts the early years of SCC, in black, white and gray, with the original administration building and Hughes Stadium. Another portion, including the current LRC, was colored in sepia tones to show the college’s building years. The last portion is in full color and shows two recent graduates, including a first-generation college student and several on-campus programs, such as Rise, Puente and EOPS.
Congratulations – and thank you! – to these dedicated students. The mural will be on display after the new year on campus.

During a lunchtime assembly in the main quad on Monday, Nov. 14, Interim President Michael Poindexter, Student Trustee Marianna Sousa and about 150 members of the college community discussed the 2016 election during an event entitled: “Campus Civility in Time of Discord: Reflection of our 2016 Election.”

The event was staged by the Cultural Awareness Center and Student Leadership and Development.
