Do you have any hobbies or special interests? I love playing baseball, weightlifting/bodybuilding, fishing, and playing the GameCube with my friends.

Congratulations to Jacob Vaughan! Jacob was selected for the Falcon Spot Award because he was described as being an ”outstanding student” while representing SIC on our baseball team plus his desire to pursue a career in the military. Thanks again, Jacob, for your service now and in the future!


The Falcon Spot award was created by the Parking and Traffic Safety Committee to show appreciation to students who have gone out of their way to make Southeastern Illinois College and the surrounding communities a better place.  Nominees must be a student of SIC and have performed a generous act, demonstrated academic success, and/or demonstrated outstanding moral character.  Winners receive a coveted “reserved” parking spot dubbed the “FALCON SPOT” for a month in the parking location of their choice, a certificate, and a gift card to the Falcon Bistro from student activities.
