Taking Attendance: STLCC Alumni Sound Off
For 50 years, St. Louis Community College has been educating the community with traditional and continuing education courses – even distance and online courses. No matter where you are in life, STLCC can give you that step-up in your education. As part of our 50th anniversary celebration, we’re inviting our one million alumni to leave a mark on our map and let us know how STLCC has helped shape their life. Whether you took one course in the 80s to get a jumpstart on your degree or have enjoyed several continuing education courses over the years, we want to hear from you.
Need some inspiration? Just read these two comments we’ve received recently from alumni.
“I graduated from the Deaf Communication Studies / Interpreter Preparation Program in 1995. I have been working ever since in a variety of jobs, most recently having finished 5 years as an interpreter for Yale University. I am now a full-time staff interpreter for a deaf professional.
STLCC gave me my start in what has been the most rewarding career I could ever have imagined.”
“I waved good bye to my youngest child as she rode off on the school bus, and then I hopped in my car and drove to my first class at FVCC. That was the beginning of a 12-year adventure ending in a BS degree in Biology and an interesting job as a Research Biologist in the pharmaceutical industry. I loved the small classes and great instruction at Flo Valley. Both of my children also started their educations at Flo; my son spent the last semester as a high school senior there on a dual enrollment program and then stayed for his first two years of college. My daughter completed her A.A. there. Both of my kids worked there while attending school; my son mentored in the math lab and my daughter worked in the library. The community college gave us all a great head start in our lives and careers. It definitely had a positive impact on all of our lives.”
Now is the time to leave your mark and tell us your story. Whether you just graduated last spring or you attended STLCC in the 60s, it’s time to take attendance.
