Milford Campus Presents Impact Awards

Southeast Community College's Milford Campus presented Impact Awards to students toward the end of the 2023 Spring Semester.

The SCC Impact Award is similar to the former Student-of-the-Quarter Award but has evolved to also include personal growth and development in students.

Recipients were nominated by faculty, and there was an opportunity for awards to be given to individuals from each program offered on the Milford Campus. Criteria includes showing accountability and respect for others, producing quality work in the classroom, and possessing strong personal and academic responsibilities.

If a program had more than 50 students enrolled, it could nominate and have two students receive the award. A small group of administrators presented the awards to students in their classrooms/labs in front of their program peers. The recipient also received a cupcake. This is a bi-annual event on the Milford Campus.

Following are Impact Award recipients by program for the 2023 Spring Semester. The student's hometown also is listed. Not every program presented awards.
