Clarke Speedway
Thanks to everyone who assisted with and attended the 2012 SWCC Speedway Nights on June 23 at the Adams County Speedway in Corning and June 30 at the Clarke County Speedway in Osceola!  The events were great opportunities to showcase the college and spread the word about everything SWCC has to offer students.  It was a lot of fun for speedway visitors to play games and win prizes.  Photos from the events are now available on SWCC's Facebook page.

The Southwestern Community College Education Foundation will soon provide scholarship funding to students through the Bob Bauman Memorial Scholarship. Beginning fall 2012, one scholarship will be awarded annually to a second year student with a major in music.  The student must have compiled a 3.0 or above grade point average. The endowment was recently established by Bauman’s family.

Southwestern Community College’s Pay it Forward (PIF) Week is back on the calendar!  Activities begin Wednesday at the college and around the community.  During PIF Week, which will run April 25-May 2, SWCC students, faculty, and staff get involved in encouraging positive behaviors and service to the community.   

Originally, SWCC’s PIF Week was scheduled for April 15-20, but events had to be re-scheduled due to the April 14 tornado that hit the college’s Creston campus.
This is the fourth year SWCC has held PIF Week.  For a complete list of PIF Week activities planned at SWCC, please visit www.swcciowa.edu/pif.
