SFCC will bid a fond farewell to some retiring employees this summer.

daune-neidigDaune Neidig began working at SFCC in 1999 in the Florida Farmworker Jobs and Education program. Just prior to that, Neidig was a volunteer in the Peace Corp in Nicaragua and also worked as a financial planner, bank manager, stock broker, school teacher, and owned her own advertising business.

            She will miss the people and her students the most. “Everybody on campus works hard to make others feel important, needed, and loved,” said Neidig. She will also miss her students. “They are very interesting people. They’re lives are much different than ours, and they understand hard work and are grateful for the education they receive here.”

            Neidig is a member of FACC and has served on the MOFAC Advisory Committee and initiated MOFAC’s Third Thursday program. She was the resident supervisor at the Hotel Jacaranda dormitory for 10 years

            During her retirement, Neidig plans to travel throughout the country as well as Austria to visit her children and grandchildren and to hike through Yosemite National Forrest.

bill-swannBill Swann began working at SFCC in 1986 as an adjunct instructor in carpentry and construction. In 1988 he became a full-time professor and manager of the Building Construction Technology Program and has worked as the coordinator of the Testing and Assessment Center. Prior to working at SFCC he owned his own construction company.

During his time at SFCC has been a member of FACC. He also served as goal keeper for the girls’ basketball and volleyball games. He has watched the campus grow over the years including the construction of Buildings B and I. “When I started, the testing area was two portables in the parking lot, and the registration area was located in the second floor of the Gym,” said Swann. “We would hand out cards to students who were registering for classes, and once we ran out of cards, the class was closed.”

During his retirement, Swann plans to remain in Sebring doing some work around the house, traveling, spending time with his children and grandchildren, and building furniture.
