 Program - Jerry Binder introduced David Hellmich, President of SVCC and Lori Cortez, Director of the SVCC Foundation. 
Dave spoke about the value and importance of Community Colleges and how fortunate we are to have such an excellent one available to our communities. Lori spoke about the Foundation and a new program being instituted, "Sauk Promise Program".  The goal is to raise awareness of the value of college to youth as young as elementary school.  The program will be introduced to area schools and after participating students meet 5 criteria they may be eligible to 3 yrs of education at SVCC.  SVCC Foundation will be kicking off a 12 million dollar campaign in the spring with an annual sustainability campaign of 500,000 annually.   Great Program!
