Several Wayne County High School students took advantage of the SCC’s help in assisting them sign up for scholarships, learn about the student ambassador program, and become aware of services at the SCC Clinton Center. Students manned computer stations in the high school media center applying for these opportunities. It is not uncommon, especially for nearby SCC recruiters to periodically visit, to help with FAFSA and college applications so it easy for local students to transition into the next step in their educations.
SCC Scholarship Coordinator Amanda Humble, encouraged students to apply for the SCC Honors Program in any program or academic area. Students can benefit from a $500 scholarship, customized honors courses, Honors mentor, and a competitive edge in scholarship, transfer and job applications.
SCC Clinton Center Director Jill Lawson also talked to students about taking advantage of what the the SCC Clinton Center has to offer them.
At the SCC Clinton Center, students can complete their SCC application, get help with completing their FAFSA, complete pre-enrollment testing (EdReady, etc.), meet with an advisor and enroll for classes. They can also proctor exams for students taking online classes with Somerset Community College.
“Basically, any service that an SCC student may need access to, Wayne County students can come to or call the SCC Clinton Center and we can assist them. In addition, we are in the process of being established as an ACT Test Center. Students will no longer have to drive to Somerset to complete their ACT – they can do this at the SCC Clinton Center,” explained SCC Clinton Center Director Jill Lawson.
Lawson also said they are currently offering a Cosmetology program with instructor Joni Upchurch. will be starting a Welding program taught by David Booher for the Fall 2020 semester, and are currently exploring the possibility of bringing an LPN program to the Clinton Center in Albany.
