R-CCC Recognizes Fall Scholarship Recipients

 Education is the ticket to advancement

R-CCC 2014 Scholarship Recipients and Donors

R-CCC 2014 Scholarship Recipients and Donors

September 11, 2014 — On Thursday, September 11, 2014, Roanoke-Chowan Community College (R-CCC) recognized 40 scholarship recipients and 14 donors.  R-CCC President Dr. Elam remarked that there are “Great people behind great initiatives.  We serve many students that show up with nothing but desire.  Education is their ticket to advancement, success, and can be a life-changing experience.  The needs in our community are great, but we can meet those needs through the continued support of the Foundation.”   Many donors were able to meet with their scholarship recipients and present a certificate and words of encouragement to the students.

Previous SECU Foundation Scholarship recipient Laverne Jones reflected on how the scholarship opportunity has been instrumental to her student success.  “It has been a blessing to be a recipient of the State Employees’ Credit Union Scholarship.  At age 58, I decided to return to school for a second time to pursue a new career.  I want to be an inspiration to my three grandchildren.  I told my instructor to look for me when I get my associate’s degree.  I will be in this classroom teaching with you.”

 Willie Williams, recipient of the DuPont L. Davis Scholarship, stated, “I realized I needed new job skills to be marketable.  I am grateful for the help I am receiving.  Learning is continuous.”

Roanoke-Chowan Community College is grateful for the continued support of each of the donors listed below and is proud to partner with each outstanding business in the Roanoke-Chowan area.  Together we will help change students’ lives.

Mrs. Karen Bell, retired Investigations Lieutenant from Old Dominion University and new Program Coordinator of the R-CCC Criminal Justice Program created an interesting and realistic mystery for her students to unravel. On October 17, she staged a murder scene on campus to teach students the basics of crime scene investigation.   Students Darlene Sanders, Shavoan Sessoms, Jai’Quan Walden, and Briante Bond worked to unmask “the killer” in a scenario that would challenge the most experienced investigator.  Just like professional investigators, students must learn how to find the evidence and use it to recreate crimes. To learn more about the Criminal Justice Program at Roanoke-Chowan Community College, contact Karen Bell at 862-1235.

Survey Shows: Roanoke-Chowan Community College Committed to Student Success

Top Performing College in Support for Learners

The Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) indicates that R-CCC’s commitment to supporting students meet career goals and to help them cope with challenges outside of academics is helping them to succeed. As identified by the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE) located at the University of Texas in Austin, R-CCC students receive career counseling from faculty and staff at a higher rate than students attending the nation’s top performing colleges. They are more likely than other community college students to say that faculty and staff help them meet the challenges that non-traditional college students often face, such as juggling academics with work and family. With more than half of R-CCC survey respondents enrolled full-time and more than one-third working and or caring for dependents in excess of 30 hours per week, R-CCC is a leader when it comes to helping students address potential obstacles to their success and providing engaging learning experiences.

 “We participate in CCSSE to continually improve the quality of education we offer our students. Understanding where we are now is critical to determining where we should go—and how we can get there,” says Dr. Michael Elam, President of Roanoke-Chowan Community College. At Roanoke-Chowan Community College we are committed to student success and we will continue to refine our efforts to increase our student completion and graduation rates by improving our students’ learning opportunities and experiences.”

Research shows that the more actively engaged students are—with college faculty and staff, with other students, and with the subject matter—the more likely they are to learn and to achieve their academic goals. CCSSE’s national benchmarks of effective educational practice in community and technical colleges address these five issues: (1) Active and Collaborative Learning, (2) Student Effort, (3) Academic Challenge, (4) Student-Faculty Interaction, and (5) Support for Learners.

R-CCC not only exceeded the national average on all five benchmarks, it exceeded the average for top-performing community colleges in the area of Support for Learners. Areas pinpointed for improvement include deep learning and critical thinking strategies such as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. The CCSSE survey instrument—administered directly to community college students at participating colleges—is a tool that helps participating institutions assess quality in community college education, focus on good educational practice, and identify areas in which they can improve programs and services for students.
