Austin, TX – Texas families are hoping their holiday traditions will bring a little extra cheer to what has been a challenging year. The Southern Careers Institute (SCI) family is no exception and will once again support local families with its annual Holiday Tree Giveaway.

Students, faculty, and staff at each of SCI’s campuses will decorate and donate a total of 26 trees to families in need this holiday season. This annual tradition takes on even more meaning this holiday season, with so many families being impacted by COVID-19.

All eight Southern Careers Institute campuses – Austin, Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Harlingen, Pharr, San Antonio North, San Antonio South, and Waco – as well as its central offices, will trim the trees with decorations and gifts, bringing good cheer and happy holidays to deserving local families.

“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.”

Campuses will vie for the coveted “Best Decorated Tree” title, and the associated bragging rights. Voting will take place on December 1, and pictures of all the trees will be posted on SCI’s social media channels. Staff and students will deliver the trees, decorations and gifts to the families on December 3, following strict social-distancing and health guidelines.

“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.”
