Cribb wins $500 Visa gift card giveaway

Southeastern Community College sophomore Michelle Cribb won the $500 Visa gift card for the Summer and Fall Registration Giveaway drawing. Cribb will graduate in May 2025 with an associate of arts degree, and she plans to transfer to UNC Wilmington to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing.  

Cribb was entered in the gift card giveaway because she registered before May 15 for her summer and fall classes. Cribb recommended that all students should register early for classes, and free giveaways are a “nice bonus.” Dean of Student Services Colene Faulk said she used a random name selector app to draw Cribb’s name from the list of eligible students. 

“I feel so blessed to win this,” Cribb said. “It was such a surprise.” 

Cribb’s favorite class at SCC is anatomy lab with Cheston Saunders. She likes the hands-on learning environment and dissecting cow eyes.  

Cribb advises her fellow classmates to “stay determined” while planning out the course load of each semester. She said it could be “overwhelming at first” but with determination and guidance from the Office of Student Services, it is possible to succeed. 

Cribb is a 2023 graduate of South Columbus High School, and she calls Nakina her home. While in high school, Cribb was part of the Career and College Promise program, where she earned college and high school credits for free.  

Now, Cribb is in the UNCW PathWays program that guarantees her admission after completing her degree at SCC. In the program, Cribb has access to tailored coaching and advising from UNCW, her application fee is waived and she has priority consideration for transfer merit scholarships.  

After graduating from UNCW, Cribb plans to be a travel nurse to gain experience and work at a clinic after that. Her interest in nursing stems from her desire to “help people out.” 

In her spare time outside of school, Cribb enjoys wakeboarding at Lake Waccamaw and golfing with her boyfriend.
