Raise the Bell

Campaign to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Southeastern Community College

Southeastern Community College was chartered on February 6, 1964 and has served our community for nearly six decades through education, career development and local outreach. As we near our 60th anniversary in 2024, we’re more excited than ever about the future of both SCC and its impact on this place we call home.

To celebrate 60 years of SCC, we’re launching the RAISE THE BELL Brick Campaign and invite you to be a part of it.

Every visitor to our beautiful campus walks by The Historic Chadbourn Bell – a symbol of SCC’s past, present and future. In 1980, during a special ceremony, the Chadbourn Bell was relocated here and dedicated in honor of Arthur W. Williamson, Sr., who donated the land for the current college campus.

As part of our 60th anniversary celebration, we’re creating an outdoor space that showcases the Bell and all it means to our community. You have an opportunity to make your mark on our campus by donating a brick for the pathway beneath and around the Bell. Your brick can:

  • Honor someone special – a teacher, graduate, classmate or friend
  • Create a memorial for someone who impacted your life
  • Or simply leave your name on a brick to show your love for our school.
