Carpentry Program Returning to South Central College Faribault Campus this Fall

Beginning in Fall Semester 2015, college students in South Central Minnesota will again have the opportunity to study Carpentry at South Central College Faribault Campus. The return of the program will help to meet workforce demands of area businesses and provide outstanding employment opportunities for students and graduates.
 
The SCC Carpentry program’s return is a direct response to the region’s building industry needs.  SCC officials met with approximately 30 leaders from area building and design businesses to discuss how the program could best prepare students with the skills today’s employees need.  Information on this program is available at http://www.southcentral.edu/Majors-and-Programs/carpentry.html.     
 
“South Central College is committed to continually evolving our programs and effectively utilizing our resources to best meet the needs of our students and communities,” said Dr. Annette Parker, President of South Central College.  “This focus is core to the mission of every community and technical college, and we take that responsibility very seriously.”

Culinary Artist!

Lacey Lueth Serves Up Eclectic Eats as Owner of Lola - An American Bistro


Lacey Lueth Alumni ProfileLola - An American Bistro is a 120-seat restaurant in downtown New Ulm, opened in 2009 by SCC graduate Lacey Lueth.  Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with handmade scones, muffins, bakery and an ever-changing menu, the restaurant is the culmination of Lueth’s drive and dedication to her craft.

SCC From the Start
"Cooking was something I was interested in since high school.  The Culinary Arts program at SCC touched on many things.  It allowed me to see the different aspects of the industry and the different opportunities that were available.  That really got my imagination going on what I could be.

When I graduated and actually got into the industry, I knew the terminology, I knew the procedures.  When they’d say, make a stock or prepare a basil chiffonade, I knew what that meant and how to do it.  It helped me start my career."

SCC Day-to-Day
"As a hands-on chef and sole owner, my role can change daily; sometimes I take on many roles.  Some days prepping, many days cooking on the line, booking events, office work, etc.  Thinking back, many of those tasks were things we covered in class, things beyond just culinary.  Things like costing and inventory management.  I recall one of my instructors telling me, when your delivery truck comes, check it in, because there are bound to be times when they short you something and you’re not going to know until it’s too late.  Good advice!

Throughout my career, having the connections to SCC has always helped.  I’ve always been able to get in touch with someone if I have questions.  It has been a great bridge builder for me. "

SCC Memories
"I remember we had a course section on coffee.  At the time, I thought, I am never, ever going to use this.  I didn’t even drink coffee at the time.  And now, coffee is a large part of my business.  So students, pay attention in class because you never know what you’ll need to know!"
