• Skagit Valley College partners with local organizations to host this year’s Back to School Blessing event on SVC’s Mount Vernon Campus

    July 29, 2019
    The start of the school year will be brighter for approximately 1,200 students and their families, thanks to the Christian Community of Skagit County and their sponsorship of the Back to School Blessing on Saturday, August 10th hosted by Skagit Valley College. The event will take place at the Gary Tollefson Plaza from 8:00 am until supplies run out. Student(s) must be present to receive supplies.
         Families and their children will receive a free breakfast, gently used school clothing, and other community services as a coordinated effort with the Christian faith-based community of Skagit County.
         “Skagit Valley College is making a difference throughout our community by opening the doors to higher education to all who seek a better future,” said SVC President Dr. Tom Keegan. “We have created a diverse learning environment where everyone is welcomed and valued. As a new generation of learners comes to our campus, we want them to know that the dream of a college education is within their reach.”
         In serving as the location host, SVC bilingual staff will join the activities planned for the children, including games, balloons, and music. Enrollment Services staff will be available to help family members who are interested in enrolling for Fall Quarter classes.                                       # # #
