In addition, the presentation outlines the bright future of SCC….all in just about 30 minutes!  The celebration is a fundraiser for the SCC Educational Foundation, and our focus is supporting student scholarships.  Please watch this presentation and consider paying it forward by helping the next generation of local students striving to achieve a college education.

Background.  SCC roots go back to 1945 when the Vallejo Unified School District established Vallejo Junior College on a middle school and elementary school site.  In 1965, a county-wide vote established a Junior College District, and the campus on Suisun Valley Road opened in 1971.  Through the years teaching sites were established on Mare Island, Travis AFB, and Nut Tree Airport.  Later, new centers were established in Vallejo and Vacaville.  Today, SCC is at the cutting edge in technology programs such as biotech, and the College is one of only 15 California Community Colleges to offer a Bachelors Degree.  SCC has educated nearly half of the College bound students in Solano County.  SCC Alumni are leaders in business, education, the arts, government, and nonprofit organizations.  The future of higher education at Solano is well established with new buildings dedicated to science and technology programs, plus a new Library and Learning Resource Center opening in 2021 on the Fairfield campus.

About the Foundation.  For 75 years, SCC has made high quality, affordable higher education available to every person in Solano seeking a college degree or career technical training. This is helping to solve a chronic problem in our society by giving the less fortunate a pathway out of poverty. The SCC Educational Foundation is passionate about supporting this mission. Our priority is providing a helping hand up to the student most in need that are working hard to achieve academic and career success. We have a track record of success by providing over $2M in support to the College since 2013.  As mentioned above, the 75th Anniversary Celebration will be a fundraising for the Foundation to raise funds for student scholarships.
