Entrepreneurial education is alive and well at Sandhills Community College.

If nothing else, the recent passing of legendary Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs reinforced in the minds and hearts of Americans the entrepreneurial gusto we have collectively laid claim to for the last century and a half. He leaves behind one of the most valuable companies in the world, according to Marilyn Neely, director of the Small Business Center at SCC.

Jobs’ life is a celebration of entrepreneurship — as it is valued and taught at Sandhills Community College, where individuals share ideas and aspirations for success in the competitive world of business.

"Steve Jobs was a true entrepreneur,” Neely says. "He was driven — and he had real passion.”

SCC business instructor Fletcher Meyers adds, "He was relentless, driven, a true visionary. He was brilliant, certainly an entrepreneur by most definitions of the word.”

These two should know. Neely oversees an oasis of business expertise, where anyone in the community can get real answers to everyday business challenges. In addition to his teaching duties, Meyers is the faculty adviser to the Sandhills Entrepre-neurship Club and a faculty representative of the Sandhills Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership.

Between the faculty, college staff and community stakeholders, Sandhills continues to be a springboard to entrepreneurial excellence.
