I view the accomplishments of Schoolcraft with pride and excitement.  Your standards are exceptional.  As a proud graduate I praise and promote the advantages of community colleges.  This institution offers opportunity to all ages for higher learning.

 Robert Richards
Rob Richards, Class of 1991

I graduated from Schoolcraft in '91 with an Associates in Liberal Arts Degree. I transferred to U of M where I graduated with honors. My time in school has been dedicated towards a quest for knowledge in philosophy and political science without a specific goal of career enhancement.  I make my living in the area of computer-aided design and have done well without the added advantage of an engineering degree.

Mo Hijazi
Mo Hijazi, Class of 1996

I graduated from SC in ‘96.  I was part of the Men's soccer teams in ‘94 and ‘95 playing for the late Van Dimitriou.  I broke the school record for goals scored with 31 goals during the ‘95 season, and our team was ranked as high as 3rd in the country. In 99’, I received my BA from Eastern Michigan University and continued to played soccer while attending the business school.  I went on to sign a contract with Lebanon’s most popular professional soccer team the "Stars".    

I went to work for Comerica Bank entering their management training program, eventually running a branch as manager for 2 years.  I've been working for Quicken Loans since ‘06, and truly love working there.  I've been happily married since ‘02 to my beautiful wife Mouna and our first child Hussein who at 17 months is already on a career path to be the next great Schoolcraft goal scorer.  My Schoolcraft years were some of my fondest memories. It's always cool to drive by the campus and remember the good ole days.

Laura A.  Martin, Class of 1996

After SC, I completed my BBA from Walsh in ‘98.  I plan to graduate from Madonna University in December ‘09 with an MBA. Although it seemed to take forever while working full time and going to school part time to earn these degrees, I don't regret the time and effort spent to further my education.  There were many life circumstances during those years that interrupted my plans, but I persevered.    Currently, I am a Workers' Compensation Underwriter for a self-insured group.

Chef Herrin
Chef Chris Herrin, Class of 1997

SC was the beginning of my formal training in the culinary arts. The knowledge and real world work experience I attained from SC’s Master Chef Faculty and facilities was very rewarding and set me up for success in the culinary field.  They taught me how to think and inspired a young baker/pastry cook to work-hard, continue to ask questions, and eat everything at least once.

I have gone on to work for Master baker Didier Rosada at the National Baking Center, MOF  Pastry Chef, Jean-Philippe Maury at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas,  World Champion Pastry Chef, Patrice Caillot at Le Cirque restaurant, MOF Pastry Chef, Jean Claude Cannister, and currently For Chef Thomas Keller , French Laundry, Per Se, Bouchon, Bouchon Bakery. Most recently, was named a regional finalist for the Bread Bakers Guild of America Team USA 2008, in the Viennoiserie category.

Linda Demers, Class of 1998

I went back to college at the age of 40 as a single mom, raising 3 children on my own. After SC, I earned a BS at EMU, a MED at OU and soon an EDS from OU. It has been a long journey that started at your door. Someday, I would like to volunteer at the SC Transition Center (it used to be the WRC Center). I feel that I could help and possibly inspire many people who are unsure about their path. I would consider not only myself, but also my 2 daughters (both of whom are working on their MA’s) who also started at to be Schoolcraft success stories.
