SPCS Newsroom

News about SPCS

SPCS students, faculty, staff and alumni regularly succeed inside and outside the classroom. Most of those  accomplishments never make local or national headlines. That doesn’t minimize those accomplishments.

We do our best to recognize media coverage, achievements and promotions and other good news on our main page, but the SPCS Newsroom seeks to provide a more nuanced presentation of SPCS accomplishments by population rather than by type or media.
