Families all over Texas are hoping their holiday traditions bring a little extra cheer to what has been a challenging year. The Southern Careers Institute (SCI) family is no exception. This year, SCI once again supported local campus communities with our annual Holiday Tree Giveaway.

Recently, students, faculty, and staff at each of our eight campuses decorated and donated a total of 26 trees and gifts to families in need. And, this holiday season, this annual tradition took on even more meaning this year, with so many families impacted by COVID-19. 

“Giving is in SCI’s DNA and every year our faculty and staff look forward to the Holiday Tree Giveaway as a way to support their local communities. This is the culmination of our annual SCI Cares effort and everyone goes the extra mile to make it special for the families.” said Nikki England, President of SCI. “We know many are hurting due to the pandemic and we want to bring a little extra joy to the holidays.”

“Once I graduated from SCI, I had a sense of accomplishment that helped me through the job search process. SCI provided me with the opportunity to brush up on my skills, extend my accounting knowledge, and they boosted my self-confidence. I went to work two days after my last day of school.”

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
