Shawnee Mascot Visits Unity 1st Grade
Shawnee Community College's mascot Bernadette visited with Mandy Woods Brinker's 1st grade class at Unity Elementary in Massac County on Tuesday. The class has adopted Shawnee Community College as their college. The classroom is decorated with an SCC pennant, flag, and colors. A stuffed Bernard watches over the class each day.
SCC Advisors Erin King and Hayley Story talked to the students about their favorite subjects and importance of education. Students received SCC t-shirts and were greeted individually by Bernadette.
Unity co-principal Debbie Christiansen said, "We appreciate Shawnee Community College and their efforts to encourage our students. SCC means a lot to our entire community."
