STAR Awards

2019 STAR Award winners pose with SSC President Lynette Stokes.

We’re excited to announce the 5th annual STAR AWARDS.

The Star Awards recognize the accomplishments of fabulous women and encourage other women to also be STARS. The awards will be presented at this year’s Women’s Conference.

We anticipate receiving award applications for and from remarkable women. The award(s) will recognize women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in business, community and/or education. These women are leaders in promoting and supporting health and wellness or personal and professional development. In the nominator’s eyes, the ”STAR” is a role model because she is achieving her goals and through her inspiring actions have profoundly motivated others to do the same.

A very special STAR award will be presented to an outstanding South Suburban College alumna. This award recognizes the achievements of a South Suburban College female graduate (whether from well into the past or recent) for her achievements in her profession/career, volunteerism or other outstanding life achievement. Through recognition of her achievements, we hope to motivate current and future women to also graduate and achieve!
