SPOTLIGHT

 

Marissa Warner

"As an incoming college student, I feel like SCC was the best choice for me! I’m very excited to see what this school has in store for me! While here, I hope to meet new people, make new memories, but most importantly, gain as much knowledge as I can to further my education at a larger university/college. After my time at SCC, I plan on completing my Bachelors degree in either Biology or Environmental Science in hopes of becoming an Animal or Wildlife Biologist!"

-- Marissa Warner, Penns Grove High School Class of 2019
