Seward County Community College celebrated our employees with service awards and an all-team picnic Thursday afternoon. The total years of service recognized at the ceremony totaled 265.
“We’re so thankful for these Saints and their dedication to excellence in what they do, and to student success,” said SCCC President Brad Bennett. “Each person on this campus is important, and the work we do, striving to be a little bit better every day, is important.” Bennett also presented a special award of appreciation to Vice President of Finance and Operation Dennis Sander, for his service as interim president on three separate occasions over the past few years.
Following the awards ceremony, employees enjoyed a picnic and games in the courtyard of the Student Living Center on campus.
