* SCC Recognized at Tulane University Commencement

Shoreline Community College is one of six colleges and universities in Washington state to be recognized in the 2009 commencement program at Tulane University in New Orleans.  Shoreline was one of some 600 higher education institutions from across the United States to be acknowledged for supporting Tulane students when the prestigious university was forced to close its doors for a semester due to flooding caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 

 

Shoreline Community College President Lee Lambert received a letter from Tulane President, Scott S. Cowen, informing him of Shoreline's tribute. President Cowen said, "I will always be grateful to the higher education community for what you did for our students and for Tulane.  We will never forget your kindness and generosity.  Thank you." 

The Shoreline Community College Board of Trustees adopted Resolution No. 91 on October 26, 2005 which established an operating Fee Waiver for Citizens Displaced as a Result of Hurricane Katrina.
