SCC hires two new learning center coordinators
Wendy Friesen is the new coordinator for Southeast Community College’s Learning Center at Hebron, while Lisa Hunzeker is taking over at the Falls City Learning Center. Both women bring a wealth of experience to the College.
Friesen earned her bachelor’s degree in Art Studies from Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. She also received a K-12 Art Education Endorsement from the University of Nebraska Kearney. Prior to her current job, Friesen worked as an art teacher in various communities and also worked at public and school libraries. She is looking forward to helping others in her new position.
“I want to help others make connections and see the value that our local learning centers bring in terms of personal growth and furthering career and educational goals,” she said.
A native of Lincoln, Friesen and her husband Jeff have lived in Hebron for the past 20 years. They have four adult children.
Meanwhile Hunzeker earned her bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Minnesota State University in Mankato, Minnesota. She was a coordinator for SCC’s Southeast Nebraska Career Academy Partnership/DC Advantage program. SENCAP allows students in 47 school districts in SCC’s 15-county service area to earn college credits at their high schools.
“One of my first goals is to make connections with individuals, businesses, organizations, and schools to establish networks of communication and partnerships throughout the Learning Center at Falls City area,” Hunzeker said.
A native of Algona, Iowa, Hunzeker now lives on a farm near DuBois. She and her husband Marc have four children: Sydney, Carly, Eliza, and Luke.
