Dr. Mark Setter, who passed away on Feb. 2, 2019, has been named the 2019 St. Clair County Community College Alumnus of the Year.
Dr. Setter attended SC4 following graduation from Port Huron Northern High School in 1972.
He completed his associate degree at SC4 in 1974, graduating summa cum laude, before earning a degree in dentistry from the University of Michigan with a post-graduate degree in periodontics.
Dr. Setter married his wife, Susan, his sophomore year of dental school and, upon graduating, returned to Port Huron to start his private practice in 1981. There, he enjoyed caring for his patients for more than 30 years.
An avid adventurer, Dr. Setter’s childhood was spent waterskiing, playing tennis and working at Black River Marina where he quickly developed a lifelong love for boats and the water. He and Susan raised children Dr. Michael Setter and Dr. Jill Bresler in Port Huron and traveled together to many exciting places around the globe.
Throughout his lifetime, Dr. Setter credited his time at SC4 for helping to prepare him for his future. He was an advocate for the college and the entire Blue Water Area community.
