Connie Haire retires from SCC

Written by 

Connie Haire, vice president for the Macon Campus Southwestern Community College, has retired after serving 25 years at the college.

Under her leadership, enrollment at the $6 million Macon campus grew 87 percent in four years and a second building to accommodate growth was built.

In fundraising and development positions, she grew foundation assets from $30,000 to more than $2 million, securing $9 million in grants. She has coordinated staff training and development, managed student services and provided leadership and administration of the public information and resource development offices.

“Connie’s strength is that she works well with so many diverse groups of people,” said SCC Board of Trustees Chairman Conrad Burrell. “She’s a visionary who can see what is possible and she also understands how to bring people together to make it happen.”

For the last couple of months, the location has played host to a weekly open mic event called the Spontaneous CombustJam.
