Emergency Preparedness Kit Day, Wed., April 20

preparednessOn Wednesday, April 22, 2015, the 2nd Annual EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS KIT DAY will take place in the main lobby of the PUB, Building 9000. The event occurs from 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. and is open to everyone.

Back by popular demand, the event supports the idea that we hope we will never have to use the kit, but a number of things could happen in our daily lives that could cause us to need an emergency kit.

Stop by to learn how to better prepare yourself for an emergency incident at work, home, and on the road. See the many ideas and options available for pre-made kits, do it yourself lists, and emergency food and water storage preparation.  Take the short, fun quiz to test your knowledge on emergency readiness on campus.

We are excited to announce we will be drawing the name of the employee who attended Winter Quarter’s “Get Ready Take Action” Training and entered the drawing for a new Grab ‘n Go Emergency Kit. The kit is self-contained in a backpack with a 3 day supply of emergency products.

We are grateful to the sponsors that will be supporting this educational event, including: Shelf Reliance – Thrive Foods, Costco, Sam’s Club, the SCC Safety Committee, Student Leadership, and SCC Emergency Management.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Shoreline Soccer Players Competing in First-Ever Collegiate Level Special Olympics Unified Soccer Game, Sat., April 18

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 10.58.35 AM

Shoreline Community College Unified Soccer is playing at Seattle University this Saturday, April 18, 2015 at the Special Olympics College Unified Soccer Invitational. Our first game is at 11:30 a.m. and the Invitational events run from 7:45 am to 7:00 pm.

Special Olympics has a wonderful program dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences. It’s called Unified Sports, and it joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.

While Unified Sports has been operating at the high school level for five years, this marks the first year of collegiate-level play. Sixteen colleges are participating in Saturday’s tournament, including fifteen from the state of Washington and one from Oregon. Participating Washington state colleges include, but are not limited to, Gonzaga, University of Washington, Western Washington University, Walla Walla Community College, Pacific Lutheran University and Shoreline.

In Unified Sports, having a sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away. Shoreline Community College is proud to be a part of an amazing coalition of students and colleges from all over the region, as well as respected guests and the Seahawks marching band!

Who are the players on SCC’s Unified Soccer team? Student athletes from the SCC Varsity Soccer team, Melissa and Autumn, students from Shoreline CC Erik and Mikhail, student volunteer coaches, SamSam and Thuy, students from the Shoreline School District, Mackenzie, and former SCC student Sean. They will take part in a day-long soccer invitational tournament at Seattle University on April 18. Come out and cheer for your school at 11:30 a.m. on soccer field #3. Be a part of a movement!
