Celebrating the end of our academic year, our SCE family shared memorable moments and success stories at the 4th annual SCE picnic at Taliaferro Park on June 13, 2013. SCE faculty, staff, alumni board members, industry supporters and program advisory board members and our UMKC collaborators and supporters enjoyed the beautiful weather while renewing connections with each other. All agreed it has been a great year for SCE as we have engaged with our students, community and each other! We were also very proud to welcome and visit with the teachers attending the ASM Materials Camp for Teachers at SCE. Our cooks, SCE faculty Mark McClernon, Jerry Place and Jerry Richardson, made sure the 120 in attendance had as many brats and burgers as they wanted. They even discovered a better way to cook the veggie burgers – steamed on the grill – delicious.
