More than 75 people attended the Young Men Emerging Leadership awards program at SCC.

Students were able to invite family and friends to join in the celebration. SCC President Michael Gutierrez, Vice President of Student Services Michael Poindexter and Interim Vice President of Instruction Don Palm were present to congratulate the recipients.

The Cultural Awareness Center has hosted this awards program for the last 13 years. The men are SCC students nominated by  faculty and staff. To be considered, students need to have excelled in one or more of these areas: have a 3.7 or higher GPA; be a community leader; overcome obstacles; have a non-traditional career path (for example, nursing); and/or be a scholar athlete.

Over the years, more than 400 students have received this distinguished award.

SCC’s brand new Makerspace launched with a Star Wars-themed grand opening party on Friday, May 4 … May the 4th be with you!

If you haven’t checked the space out yet, be sure to stop by sometime. The energy of the students working there and the exciting tools and equipment may inspire you to imagine, design, create!

Located in a galaxy not so far away (Cosmetology 108 and 110), the Makerspace is packed wall-to-wall with cutting edge technology for students to use in project-based learning. The equipment and work areas include 3D printers, laser cutters, podcast recording studio, and a fully stocked woodshop.

The Makerspace is a place for students to be creative, experiment, collaborate, innovate and bring their ideas to life. It allows for real-life applications of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics concepts.

“When I first came into the Makerspace, I realized I finally found a place where I can work on my purpose,” said student Steven Betterly. “Whatever ideas that I have, I can come here and actually do something, make something out of that. I can now invent.”

Students are able to gain experience that will not only help them succeed in classes, but will give them a leg up in achieving their career goals. In addition to hard skills, such as how to use equipment, they learn soft skills that are just as important, such as critical thinking, teamwork and communication.

SCC joins a statewide movement of establishing makerspaces at community college campuses, and secured a seed grant through the California Community Colleges’ CCC Maker initiative to fund startup costs.

Congratulations to all scholarship recipients!
