Here is a sampling of SCC’s outstanding graduates: 

  • Amanda LeVan 
    LeVan was working full-time at an early learning center when she started taking classes at SCC in 2016. A non-traditional student who was also raising a family with her husband, she took one course at a time. Eight years later, she’s graduating from EICC with honors, an associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education, and a lot of pride. “I did it, and this is something I did for myself,” she said. 
  • Anthony Holland and Keionna Holland 
    Many parents are overcome with pride when their child graduates. For Anthony Holland, the event on Friday will hold even more significance. His daughter, Keionna Holland, will graduate with a transfer degree in Criminal Justice. The same day, he is graduating with a Culinary Arts degree. Both have big plans for the future.  
  • Bradley Thiessen-Cooper 
    Thiessen-Cooper had been out of school for 14 years when he decided to return, and he excelled. He was SCC’s Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) chapter President, PTK Iowa Regional President, a PTK Hallmark Award recipient, and an Iowa All-Academic Student. Thiessen-Cooper achieved all of this while balancing school, work, and a newborn son. With an associate’s degree in communication, he plans to transfer to St. Ambrose University in the fall.  

    Theissen-Cooper will be featured at Commencement as the 2024 student speaker.
