SCC Alumni & Friends Reception | April 18, 2024

Alumni and friends joined us for an evening of delicious appetizers and an opportunity to socialize and network with fellow graduates while listening to industry professionals Ron May and Louis Farber, Stray Cat Theatre Co-Artistic Directors, speak on the importance of the performing arts and its positive impact on the community. SCC Alumna Dr. Ramona Ortega-Liston also shared insight into the role of students in selecting the SCC mascot, “Artie the Artichoke.” Dr. Ortega-Liston was an active member of the Student Leadership Council in the 1970s when the school mascot was chosen.

The reception was followed by an exhilarating night of love, rivalry, and dance as the School of Film+Theatre proudly presented West Side Story. SCC's talented cast and crew continued their tradition of delivering captivating and diverse musical experiences that leave audiences spellbound.
