Introducing Schoolcraft College Difference Makers

As part of Schoolcraft College’s 50th anniversary celebration we wanted to honor the college’s 50-year legacy of serving this community by recognizing the people who have created that legacy and have helped make the college and the community what it is today.

In seeking nominations from our various constituent groups and the community during the early part of 2012, we defined Difference Makers as those who have made an impact on Schoolcraft College; and those, by virtue of their relationship to Schoolcraft College, who have had a significant impact on their community, professionally or personally.

Nominees and nominators included  current students, alumni or former students, instructors, staff members, retirees, administrators, donors, volunteers, board members, friends, community leaders, business leaders, and employers.

We hope you will enjoy reading the profiles of our Schoolcraft College Difference Makers. You can find their stories in the Categories list to the right. They are categorized either in alphabetic groupings  or by the type of relationship each nominee has with the college; or use the Search option above.
