On May 4, SCTCC students were celebrated as part of the annual Student Recognition Breakfast, which was held in-person for the first time since 2019.

Several students from all areas of the college were recognized for having made a difference while at SCTCC. This included members of clubs, athletics, academic programs, and student workers, to name a few.

The Haller Athletes of the Year were announced at the breakfast, with softball Cyclone Molly Carnell named as the Female Haller Athlete of the Year, and baseball Cyclone Jackson Peter named as the Male Haller Athlete of the Year.

The Haller Athlete of the Year Award is given to athletes who are a superior competitor, quality student, and an outstanding citizen.

The Instructor of the Year was also awarded, which is a Student Senate sponsored award given every year. The student body is asked for nominations for instructors who have made a difference and go above and beyond for students. The 2022 Instructor of the Year is Sheryl Workman, Marketing & Design Instructor.

One of the nominations for Sheryl said, “Sheryl has had the ability to present herself in determined energy every single day for my two-year program and motivates us not only me but my classmates too. She is always on top of her game and always knows how to help us to the best of her ability!”

Campus Life Director Shaun Keeley said of the event, "It is always great to honor the students who make the SCTCC community the wonderful place that it is. These students have done this in the classroom, as part of clubs or teams, and given their time and energy to this campus in ways that go above and beyond. To me, this event is about making sure we let them know that we see their impact, we appreciate their impact, and we will not forget that impact."
