"My experience at Salem Community College has literally been a family affair. My daughter, Rita, graduated last year and my son, Gregory, plans on graduating in 2020. My SCC family has encouraged me to continue my education and that’s exactly what I’m going to do in the fall at Wilmington University. Thank you SCC, for my wonderful journey in education!"

-- Bonnie Rivera, graduating class of 2019
