Shout-Outs!

Shout-out to Quang Le & Tommy Harvey of Facilities & Capital Projects for Inclusive Excellence, Respect and Sharp awareness! They were here (@5100) to assess one problem, a door lock malfunction, and noted fluorescent light tubes were out. They quickly retrieved a box of new tubes and replaced all the burned-out ones. They did so deftly with grace, humor and quick, sharp skills. Thanks so very much, Quang and Tommy! The work area is so much brighter now! submitted by Jeff Keith, SCC Mail Driver and SCC Shipping & Receiving department.

International Holocaust Remembrance Day

As you may know, today is International holocaust remembrance day.  This date (January 27th) is chosen because it was on January 27th that Auschwitz Birkenau was liberated.  People around the world recognize and commemorate the 6,000,000 Jewish people and millions of other victims of the holocaust on this day.

While there are many ways to commemorate those who perished, the United Nations “urges every member state to honor the six million Jewish victims of the Holocaust and millions of other victims of Nazism and to develop educational programs to help prevent future genocides”.  Certainly, this is commensurate with our DEI goals and mission as an institution of higher education.  Throughout the world and this nation, genocides of various types have occurred and continue to occur.  It is our duty to stand against regimes that would perpetuate the philosophies of the Nazis regardless of the nomenclature used or methods of persecution.  I am very proud to be a member of a college that has done so throughout our educational programs and will continue to do so in the future.

In peace and in remembrance,

Jack
