Southeast Community College received the 2019 “Investor of the Year” award from the Falls City Economic Development and Growth Enterprise (EDGE). The award was presented on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2020, at the EDGE Annual Banquet. SCC received the award for “supporting the economic development mission of EDGE and exhibiting a high degree of excellence and vision.”

SCC President Dr. Paul Illich and members of the Board of Governors Kathy Boellstorff and Keith Hammons accepted the award, along with Falls City Learning Center Coordinator Holly Carr. Last September, SCC opened a new 9,500 square-foot learning center on the north edge of Falls City. The building includes four classrooms, a large manufacturing space and health sciences area. Credit and non-credit classes are offered, as well as business and industry training.

SCC’s learning centers are part of the College’s strategic plan to better serve the educational needs of the communities within the College’s 15-county service area. Falls City is one of six centers, with others in Hebron, Nebraska City, Plattsmouth, Wahoo, and York.

The mission of the EDGE is to encourage economic development and improve the business conditions of the greater Falls City/Richardson County area.
