The killings earlier this year of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery—and the nationwide protests they generated—left many in our community eager and energized to actively engage in dismantling systemic racism. SPSCC aims to support these efforts by bringing resources, trainings, and tools to the larger community, and amplifying the voices of those who must be heard.
Hunter Grandorff got his start at SPSCC in the Running Start program in 2014 after being a homeschooled student. He knew he wanted to build and create with his hands—something in the trades—but he was worried he might not be well received by his classmates as an 18 year old. His experience was just the opposite.
Theatre students are playing in a whole new way this year, and theatre fans are sure to be impressed. SPSCC drama professor Dr. Lauren Love has blurred the lines of acting and production, and brought in some pretty cool technology, to give students a valuable experience that will leave them prepared for theatre in the COVID era and beyond.
This winter, SPSCC is introducing “Engaging Race & Dismantling Racism”, a noncredit three-part class with a focus on racial equity. The class is open to anyone in the community and participants will walk away informed, challenged, and empowered to take action toward dismantling racism at a personal level.
