The Faribault winner was Zack Gohlike and North Mankato winner was Nona Miller. Each winning with a full house.

WELLNESS INTERN
We are thrilled that we will have an Intern working with the Wellness Committee for the next few months. Lindsay Olson will be with us for 450 hours. Her major is Community Health Education.

SCC Leadership Academy
We will be recruiting members for 2012-13 academic year next fall. The objective of the innovative SCC Leadership Academy is to develop and improve leadership skills of SCC employees and to familiarize them with important aspects of leadership at every level of the College. Employees who know the college and their communities better are in better positions to resolve conflicts, solve problems, made decisions and contribute to strategic planning.


The Academy meets once a month – all day – from October to April. The day and week can be determined by the Academy members at the first meeting. We only ask that you commit to attend all 7 meetings.
