Mike Shinn | SCC Alum, Market President, Mid West One Bank

I grew up in Burlington and went to SCC after graduating from high
school. Although I initially wanted to go away to school, I'm very glad I chose SCC. Staying in Burlington allowed me to work at the bank and complete my Associate's degree at the same time. By attending SCC, I was able to pay for my classes as I went and graduated without any student debt.

The coursework at SCC definitely prepared me for the next level of my
education as I continued on to a four-year institution. I believe SCC is
a great stepping stone and gives students the opportunity to explore different career options.
