SC4’s 11th annual free college day will be Saturday April 13, 2013.
According to SC4 Marketing Coordinator Martha Pennington, there are over 150 classes being offered.
“There are a couple of cooking classes to demonstrate smoking and barbecuing meat as well as cooking with confidence classes,” said Pennington.

She said there is something for everyone with classes ranging from preparing for retirement, cello lessons, playing drums and hobby classes. Pennington also said there will be a beer brewing class as well as watercolor painting classes.
SC4 Executive Director of Public Relations Shawn Starkey said one of the new classes offered this year is a history of Saint Clair County Community College.

Starkey said that Professor Emeritus Tom Obee will return to teach the course on the history of SC4.
“We were thrilled that Mr. Obee could teach. He has 43 years worth of stories to share,” said Starkey.
According to Obee, a teacher’s love of classroom interaction never dies. “It will feel very good to be back in the saddle again. It’s been over a year and a half since I was last in the classroom,” said Obee.
Pennington said classes fill quickly and she recommended early registration to assure getting the class you want.
For those interested in signing up to take classes, a listing of classes offered can be found at www.sc4.edu/freecollege.
