Seward County Community College/Area Technical School is the recipient of the 2013 Lee Noel-Randi Levitz Retention Excellence Award, one of three colleges and universities chosen to receive this award. Accepting the award are Rhonda Kinser, center, SCCC/ATS counselor/retention specialist, and Celeste Donovan, dean of student services, shown here with Kevin Crockett, president and CEO of Noel-Levitz. The award recognizes state-of-the-art programs and services that are improving retention by promoting student success and satisfaction through a comprehensive advising program, mandatory first-year seminar course, strong academic support, early alert and at-risk team intervention systems, Student Support Services through the TRiO program and opportunities for student engagement. SCCC/ATS, which has been recognized as having one of the highest percentages of foreign-born residents of any city in the United States, has made great strides in increasing the retention rates of its Hispanic students. More than 70 percent of the SCCC/ATS students are first-generation students, and the vast majority enroll in at least one developmental education course. Courtesy photo
