Seward County Community College recognized team members for years of service in an all-campus ceremony in May. College president, Dr. Ken Trzaska, expressed appreciation to employees who have served for many years.
“At the end of the day, everyone plays a part. I’ve only been here a little less than two years, but our work here has been inspiring, challenging, and something that I find meaningful each day,” he said. “Each day means something to our progress as an organization, and I appreciate each person who has a role in that process. Today we recognize team members who represent that dedication to our mission. At the end of the day, it’s about changing young peoples’ lives and our nontraditional students’ lives, having the opportunity to serve them.”
