SCTC celebrated its winners on February 23, 2017 at a college-wide reception held in the Event Center on the Griffin Campus.

It was a dark and spooky night… On the evenings of October 28 and 29, 2016, curious folk found their way to the abandoned graveyard that had appeared behind Mobile 8 and the old shopping center. Many said they had never traveled so deep into the recesses of the campus, and they were surprised to find so much paranormal activity there. Next to the graveyard, they found an eerily-lit house with unusual evidence and ghosts recalling the events leading up to their deaths. They traveled through the graveyard and the house with detectives, learning about the cold cases that had been reopened and about the bizarre behavior of the alleged killer. As they departed, they were asked to formulate their own theories about the crime scene, but as they did so they came to the realization that the killer was in their midst! If you missed the Performing and Literary Arts Student Association’s first Haunted House experience last weekend, then you missed an entertaining and groundbreaking event! Attached, you will find a lovely wrap up collage highlighting the event. This event was designed to raise money for the Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy and for Promise Place, which supports victims of domestic violence. The club and its supporters have raised $1086 to benefit these two charities. Many thanks are due to a large group of people, because without their support, this large undertaking would never have been possible.
