SCC to Graduate Approximately 750 Students on Dec. 14

Southeast Community College will graduate approximately 750 students during the Fall Commencement Ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at Pinnacle Bank Arena, 400 Pinnacle Arena Drive, Lincoln. The graduation ceremony is an all-college ceremony and includes students from the Beatrice, Lincoln and Milford campuses. Additionally, students who graduated during the Summer term are also invited to walk at this graduation ceremony.

Tickets are not required for the ceremony, and there is no limit to the number of guests per graduate. Guests are invited to sit in any non-reserved section in the 100-level of the arena with handicap seating available on the main concourse. PBA enforces a clear-bag policy, which limits the size and type of bag allowed in the venue.

Paid parking is available at Park & Go parking garages and metered street parking around PBA. Accessible parking is also available at Park & Go with the drop-off area located on the south side of PBA (R Street).

Nicholas Salestrom, 2023 Nebraska Community College Outstanding Faculty Member for SCC, will give the graduation address. He started teaching at SCC in 2013 as an adjunct instructor before joining the Beatrice Campus full-time as an English instructor in 2015. Salestrom currently serves as the program chair for the Beatrice English and Humanities programs.

“The best part about working at SCC is the students,” Salestrom said. “I grew up in the same region of Nebraska that SCC serves, so I share common experiences with many students with whom I work. Every time I meet a student from a background different from my own, my perspective of my community is enriched immeasurably.”

The ceremony will be live streamed if family and friends are not able to attend in-person.
