Austin, TX – The following is a statement by Nikki England, President of Southern Careers Institute in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.

Families celebrate together in community. Today, September 15, marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month – a time to recognize the influence and contributions of Hispanic Americans to the place we all call home. For us at Southern Careers Institute, Hispanic Heritage Month is a celebration of the rich culture and diversity of our students, faculty and staff members. And together, as a family, we honor the achievements and contributions of our Hispanic community.

Ideally, we would love to be gathering together at our campuses as we have in the past. However, as we continue to deal with the impact of COVID-19, we will instead be taking our celebrations online via social media. Throughout the month, look for stories about successes, traditions, and memories; and posts about Hispanic leaders who have made a lasting impact in our community.

Be sure to share your Hispanic Heritage Month celebration with us by using #SCIfamilia. Even though our recognition – and parties – will be virtual this year, we will find ways to engage with one another, learn about each other, and have fun like only family can.

SCI provided me with the medical terminology and know how that I needed to understand and acquire a career in the medical field. SCI taught me that it doesn’t matter where you are in life right now; you always have room to advance and learn.”

“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.”
