Phonathon raises scholarship money


With the help of many student organizations, the Seward County Community College 2015 phonathon has had a successful start. The phonathon has also brought along competition between organizations and so far the SCCC baseball team has raised the most money with over $10,000 in just two hours. However, there is still a long list of organizations waiting for their turn to participate. The baseball team, HALO, Phi Theta Kappa, the Crusader, ENACTUS, cheerleaders and more have worked the phones to raise as much money possible for future scholarships. “I had such a fun experience working the phonathon,” ENACTUS member Ana Rodriguez said, “It was a great way to reach out to the alumni and supporters.” “The Phonathon seemed weird at first but after awhile it became really fun and I’m sure students who haven’t done it yet will feel the same,” HALO member Sindy Humaran said. The 2015 phonathon will continue through April 10 with participation from the Student Government Association, Student Nursing Association, Block and Bridle agriculture club, and other athletic teams.
