Keeping education affordable Arnie Stanek Graduate GED/HSE Scholarship is making a difference
SIBLINGS INSPIRED BY MOM’S PASSION rnoldine (Arnie) Stanek believed deeply in the transformative power of education, and she was living proof of it. As the only one out of 13 siblings to complete high school, Arnie understood the many challenges students face and the importance of an encouraging word. In her work at SCC she became a champion for students preparing for the GED test (now the High School Equivalency) and faithfully served for more than a decade, growing what is now the Adult Education and Literacy Department. She started as secretary, earned her master’s degree and worked her way to associate dean. Family also was important to Arnie. Her successful career was simultaneous with raising three girls and one boy, and it came on the heels of their travel during her husband’s career in the Army and work following his service.
CHRISTINE STANEK MCDONALD “Our mom believed that all people should be able to get a college education, and she was especially empathetic to those students getting a GED.” Pictured: Christine Stanek McDonald (right), her dad Ed Stanek on her left, and siblings (right to left) Laura Ringhofer, Karla Kurtz and Matt Stanek. 4
When cancer took Arnie’s life in 1998, her family established a scholarship in her name, and a tree was planted on campus in her memory. Nearly 20 years later, Arnie’s passion to assist and encourage students lives on.
All four of her children followed in her footsteps, pursued college degrees, marriage, family and successful careers of their own. “Our mom thought you should be your own person and find your own way,” said Karla Kurtz, Arnie’s daughter. “That’s why our family is committed to helping others do the same.”
Because of the Stanek family and people like you, Kathy will be the first in her family to get a college education. The scholarship is making it possible for her to pursue a better life for herself and her family. Growing up as the eighth child out of 10, Kathy said her dreams were never big because her parents did not read or write, much less have a college education. When she moved from Mexico to the United States, she wanted to get a good job to support her family but found that to be challenging. Determined, she pursued and earned her GED, hoping that would help her efforts. However, she learned she did not have the experience or job history she needed to get the type of job she wanted.
MEET K ATHY, 2016 ARNIE STANEK GRADUATE GED/HSE SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT
She wanted to go to college but did not find the courage until some friends saw her using her talents as an interpreter while they were on a mission trip to Nicaragua. That's when they encouraged her to continue her education. With new motivation, she enrolled in classes at SCC and applied for scholarships to help speed her education along. She wants to be the first in her family to have a college education, for her two daughters to see her graduate and to be able to land a good job. “Thank you so much for the opportunity you are giving me,” Kathy said.
THANK YOU TO A LL W HO H AV E ESTA BLISHED THESE SCHOL A RSHIPS
“As a single mother, it means so much knowing that with this extra help I’ll be able to keep going with my education and still have time to be a mom for my daughters.”

ROCKIN' IT FOR GEOLOGY STUDENTS
Now students who do not have access to the Internet at home, either due to cost or because of limited access in their community, will be able to complete their homework on their own timetable. Mobile hotspots are available for students to check out from the SCC library at no cost.
A new slab saw allows students studying geology to gain a better understanding of rocks and minerals by seeing freshly cut, unweathered surfaces. Students are able to observe what's inside and learn successfully in a lab setting.
LEARNING IN 3-D emorizing all the body parts just got easier for students studying for Human Biology or Anatomy and Physiology classes, with the use of new models provided to the ACE Tutoring Center. The models deliver a hands-on, realistic learning experience. Bailey, who is studying at SCC to be a nurse, uses the fetal pig and other models to prepare for her exams. She chooses to study in the ACE Tutoring Center on campus because she likes to work at her own pace in a quiet environment. “I’m a very hands-on learner, and being able to feel the models really brings everything to life for me. I can see everything and the light bulb goes on,” Bailey said. Thanks to your generosity, students like Bailey are getting a high-quality education that prepares them to be successful in their careers.

THEA BORN, 1919-2016
ENDOWMENT S U R PA S S E S
ith a team effort between board members and donors, SCC’s endowment surpassed the $1 million mark this year. “This 13-fold increase since the fund’s inception in 2008 is a testament to the commitment of board members and donors who believe in taking care of the students today and the students of tomorrow,” said Joe Cook, president of J.S. Cook Advisors and immediate past president of the SCC Foundation Board.
Tenacious and courageous, Thea overcame many obstacles, including becoming an accomplished engineer during a time when it was challenging to do so. Her belief in the transformative power of education led her to become a member of the SCC Legacy Society in 2009, a group of supporters who make a planned gift to SCC. Her bequest will help tomorrow’s students reach their own dreams. Thea’s life will be celebrated with the establishment of a named endowed scholarship for women in STEM and a named space in the college’s new building at One Academy Place.
SCC’s endowment includes a general fund and eight individual endowment funds: Ameristar Endowment Carol McCauley Swink Endowment Employee Sponsored Program Endowment John McGuire Endowment Jo Anne Rocklage Endowment Callie & Kurtis Daniels Endowment Schnare Family Endowment Thea Born "Women in STEM" Endowment

Graduates today, leaders of tomorrow Students and community reap benefits BEN WAGGONER, CFP® CLASS OF 1999 hat distinguishes Ben is his entrepreneurial spirit. During his second year at SCC, Ben discovered his passion for helping people with their financial planning and immediately found a way to start on this career path while in school. He worked full-time while attending classes and earned his Associate of Arts in 1999. His first job at Edward Jones gave him access to the professional development opportunities he needed to help get his own business started and growing. In 2007, Ben became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. It took commitment and discipline to fulfill the requirements for the desired industry designation while balancing his responsibilities at work and with his growing family. Over the past 18 years, Ben has served in various voluntary leadership roles within Edward Jones to help train, coach, encourage and inspire others starting and growing their businesses.
2017 DISTINGUISHED ALUMNI AWARD RECIPIENT “When I started taking college classes right after high school, I didn’t know yet what career path I wanted to take. Going to SCC offered me the opportunity to get my education started while keeping my career options open.” 10
Ben moved his business to New Melle, Mo., in 2014, and he remains excited about his future with Edward Jones. The friendliness of the small town drew him in and he soon became a leader in the community, where he served as president of the New Melle Chamber of Commerce. Ben and his wife Jennifer (also an SCC alum) live in Wentzville and are raising four children, 12, 8, 5 and 3.
Meet Laurie Evans-Schoenecker CL ASS OF 2008, SCHOL ARSHIP RECIPIENT, BEHAVIOR AL HEALTH THER APIST
Laurie is living her dream and acknowledges the important role SCC and its Foundation played in the journey. “As a returning learner, wife and mother of two boys, SCC offered the foundation I needed to succeed. If it had not been for the college, I would never have been able to do what I did. I believe this college helps our community, and I want to give back,” Laurie said. Today, Laurie not only has a career as an insurance care manager at Great Circle, but she also recently started her own private practice as a behavioral health therapist for children and adolescents, the dream she had for much of her life. In addition to earning an associate degree in 2008, Laurie earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in social work and is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
Meet Sandra Thomas CL ASS OF 2017, SCHOL ARSHIP RECIPIENT, FUTURE I.T. SECURIT Y PROFESSIONAL Sandra developed a desire to further her own education at SCC by watching her mom do what seemed to be the impossible: earn an associate degree from SCC while also working part-time and rearing and homeschooling five children. Sandra said the positive and nurturing learning environment SCC provides to women pursuing STEM fields was the catalyst to her decision to pursue the field of cybersecurity. She recalled being the only female in her first course and said she benefited from the encouragement of her instructor. It was because of that support that she continued down that path.

Even so, expenses add up with a family of seven. And, when Sandra’s grandmother fell ill, a scholarship from the SCC Foundation made it possible for her to complete her studies. Sandra graduated from SCC in May at the age of 18 and plans to transfer to Lindenwood University to get her bachelor’s degree. "I cannot say thank you enough," Sandra said. "SCC is a blessing to me and I am sure to others in the community."

IN HIS OWN WORDS: SETH PEIMANN
ttending St. Charles Community College played a significant role in helping me get started with my education. As the administrator for NHC St. Charles, I am proud to have highly qualified SCC alumni working alongside me to provide quality long-term care for patients. I believe SCC is a valuable asset to our community, and it is my honor to serve on the SCC Foundation Board. I consider my service to SCC and to my community to be an important way to give back.” SCC Foundation Board President Seth Peimann went on from SCC to earn a Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Missouri-Columbia. He supports many community organizations including the Foundation for Geriatric Education (founded by NHC), which raises funds for the education of health care professionals and benefits SCC students.
Mr. James Wieczorek The Law Firm of Michael T. George, P.C.
The Foundation would like to thank departing board members Jan Dunham and Kelly Felber for their support and service to the Foundation Board. Special thanks to Sue Spencer for 12 consecutive years of service to the Foundation Board.
The Foundation Board leads the SCC Foundation in its fundraising efforts and supports the mission of St. Charles Community College, college leadership and the SCC Board of Trustees. stchas.edu
WHY WE GIVE: “There is power in education, and the community college is an equalizer for all students,” Callie said. “The college provides an opportunity for anyone to become successful, but you’ve got to work at it,” Kurtis said.
CALLIE AND KURTIS DANIELS nspired by the students who put in the extra effort it takes to be successful, Callie’s desire to help has grown considerably during her 25 years teaching at SCC, and it reaches beyond helping students in her math classes. Together with her husband Kurtis, the couple took action on their own beliefs in giving faithfully to a good cause and created a named endowment fund at SCC. It is their wish for the investment to help students today and for many years to come. Both were gifted athletes in college, and preparing for competition was a way of life. While they did well in the classroom too, they admit schooling did not come as naturally, and it took work to get their education and go on to successful careers. “When we give to educate and help students, then that gift is compounded further because an education lasts a lifetime,” Callie said. “It is our hope that many of these students will be able to continue in this spirit of giving as they are able, and turn around to help the next person in need.” Callie, SCC professor of math, also is an accomplished author of textbooks for algebra, trigonometry and pre-calculus. Kurtis is principal and vice president of Cochran, a civil engineering firm in Wentzville. They have two sons, Clayton and Grady.
Thank you to the generous ... COMMUNITY MEMBERS, LEADERS, PHILANTHROPISTS, BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY, PRIVATE FOUNDATIONS AND MORE WHO SUPPORTED THE SCC FOUNDATION IN 2016.

WHY I GIVE: I support the Employee Sponsored Program because it is a wonderful way to see my contribution working immediately in the lives of students and college employees. I feel that funding from ESP members can make a tremendous difference to all they serve: helping students achieve their academic goals, helping departments fund individual projects, recognizing significant events in the lives of employees and enhancing the entire atmosphere of the college. My colleagues and I were very thankful to receive a portion of the funding this year to use toward supplies that enhance the experience of SCC students at the theater open houses. Lynne Snyder, associate professor of theater, has been an SCC employee for 15 years and an ESP member for four years.
