Louise Walker was still at Solano Community College when she got her job at First Northern Bank and began working her way up to the job of president and CEO of that local financial institution.
Karen McCord used her education at Solano College to do what she wanted most, work with at-risk students to improve their lives. She now does so as a professor of psychology at the school and coordinator of its ethnic studies program.
Walker and McCord were two of 12 alumni honored for their success and support for their community Wednesday at the college’s Celebrate SCC 2014 event, organized by the Solano Community College Educational Foundation.
