SSC Student Award: Success through Service and Commitment

The Student Success Center (SSC) Student Award Committee requests nominations and applications for the SSC Student Award funded through donations from the SSC staff and other interested faculty and staff at the College.

Award recipients are chosen based on nominations received from faculty and staff.
