Fostering Success Within the Cyclic Workforce: Seminole Community College's Innovative Approach to Helping Apprenticeship Students Live, Work, and Learn
Garlich, Michael; Tesinsky, Suzanne
Community College Journal of Research & Practice, v29 n8 p591-597 Sep 2005
A first of its kind in the state of Florida, the Seminole Community College's Center for Building Construction was constructed as a partnership project between Seminole Community College, industry persons and the state of Florida. A training facility for students in the Construction Trades Apprenticeship Program, the building stands on the SCC Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. Funding originated with donated trade services, labor, and cash from over 90 professionals, contractors and vendors in the surrounding community. Those donations were then matched by the state of Florida in order to provide the facility to Seminole Community College at no cost. Seminole Community College won the 2004 Bellwether Award in the Planning, Governance and Finance category in recognition of this effort.
