2022 SCC Alumni Award

WHAT: The SCC Alumni Award will be presented in the Summer of 2022 to one former SCC intern who has distinguished themselves through a high level of achievement/accomplishment utilizing their SCC experience in their post-intern career.

WHY: To gauge the success and impact of our program, SCC recognizes that in addition to successful internships, we must also look to the achievements and contributions of our alumni afterwards to truly measure program impact.
