From Seattle Central
Seattle Central College is celebrating its 50th anniversary and is capping the festivities off by showcasing the work of its graduating class. The theme of the celebration is “Central to Inspiration,” and it will feature a variety of student projects.
Among the graduating class is Lauren Gibbons, who is receiving a degree in the Apparel Design & Development Program. After dropping out of high school, Lauren received her GED (from SCC) before joining the Army Reserves and being deployed to Iraq as a Civil Affairs specialist. Upon returning from her tour of duty, Lauren decided she wanted to pursue a career that focused on her creativity. Seattle Central College’s Apparel Design & Development Program is helping her realize that goal.
“The program has made me more confident,” says Gibbons. “Now I feel I can go out and not only get a job but get a job that is going to be really fulfilling for me.”
