Recent SCC Alum Awarded Gold Medallion at SkillsUSA Competition!

Cassandra Dlugiewicz
The winners of the SkillsUSA National Championships were announced at the National Skills and Leadership Conference Awards Ceremony. Cassandra Dlugiewicz (Madelia) was awarded a Gold Medallion for Pin Design. For this category, students present their state-winning pin and artwork, describe its unique qualities, and explain how their design represents their state and why another SkillsUSA member would want to wear it.
Dlugiewicz graduated this spring from SCC with an A.A.S. in Graphic Communications. When asked about her first place finish, Dlugiewicz said, “Since this was my first year in SkillsUSA, the whole week was different from anything I'd experienced before. I was nervous going in, but I came out proud of what I accomplished. Winning a gold medallion in a national competition completely validated my career and education choices. I had the best instructors at SCC. My success is just as much theirs as it is mine.”

Summer of Sixty-Two

Remember When?

December 6, 1990

On December 6, 1990, Chief Ernest Wabasha participated in a dedication ceremony in Heritage Hall, which commemorated a painting by SCC's first Commercial Art instructor, Rod Furan. “Summer of Sixty-Two” depicts a Dakota Indian hunting party on the banks of the Minnesota River during the summer of 1862.

About the Artist
Rod Furan was the first Commercial Art instructor for South Central College. He was hired in the spring of 1968, with the charge of writing the curriculum for a completely new approach to teaching Commercial Art. He began the new program that fall, and continued teaching until there was a need for his family to move to a warmer climate in April of 1979. Rod Furan is an accomplished commercial and fine artist with more than fifty years of professional experience. Today, he specializes in oil and acrylic paintings depicting the traditions of the American West. Rod’s work has been presented in shows and galleries throughout the U.S. 
A limited supply of signed and numbered prints are available at the Blue Earth County Historical Society and South Central College Bookstore. 
The full-color reproduction measures 18” x 24”.
