Ferrato is one of the most respected photo journalists in the United States. A documentary photographer from Lorain, Ohio, Ferrato has published four books including “Living with the Enemy” and “Love & Lust”; as well as participating in over 500 one-woman shows internationally. Ferrato has received awards such as the W. Eugene Smith Grant (1986) and the Robert F. Kennedy Award for Humanistic Photography (1987).

She also has a traveling retrospective, first exhibited in Italy at Cortona On The Move 2017 festival, called “American Woman: 40 Years,” which brings all of Ferrato’s lifelong projects—domestic violence, sex, Tribeca, assignment work, and family life—together for the first time.

Skylanders’ Baseball to Host Military Appreciation Game

in Home Page, News, Performing Arts Box, Performing Arts Spotlight

Sussex County Community College continues to be a very military-friendly college and is proud to have many area veterans attending college.  SCCC’s Veteran Services Coordinator works to ensure that each veteran student is given the attention they deserve.

The SCCC Skylanders Baseball team is proud to be hosting a special Military Appreciation Game on Tuesday, April 24 at Skylands Stadium in Augusta, starting at 7 p.m. The Skylanders will face the Colts of SUNY Orange County Community College. The rain date will be April 25th at 7 pm.

This event will be a fundraiser for the College’s Student Veterans Emergency Relief program (SVER). SVER provides emergency funds to student veterans at SCCC who need financial help in between semesters. Veterans receive a VA housing allowance of $2600 per month, but only when college is in session. SVER aids veterans with additional assistance for those veterans who qualify and are in need of housing, car payments, food, and other essentials when college is not in session.

SCCC is the only college in the area that offers this type of added financial support to student veterans. They are able to get additional assistance and continue their education without interruption. The SVER is able to provide an emergency stipend during a gap in their lives.

To make a donation to SVER visit on Student Veteran’s Support at SCCC.

For more information about our veterans services contact the Veteran Services Coordinator at 973.300.2109.
