TCC Day @ Godby brings college to high school campus

March 30, 2017

 

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (March 30, 2017) – Tallahassee Community College hosted an information fair for prospective students Thursday, March 30, at Amos P. Godby High School.

As part of “TCC Day @ Godby,” students received information about experiential and academic enrichment programs, financial aid and scholarships, and advising and mapping. The College also provided an opportunity for interested individuals to apply to TCC for the Summer and Fall 2017 semesters.

“As one journey ends, a new one begins,” said Rocky Hanna, Leon County Schools superintendent, in remarks to the students regarding their upcoming graduation. “We’re proud to partner with TCC and President Murdaugh on the programs that they offer.”

Godby students also enjoyed a hands-on experience in STEM-related studies, specifically robotics. The students operated various robotic devices with the guidance of current TCC students, who explained the mechanics that make the devices operable.

In addition to Hanna, speakers included TCC President Jim Murdaugh and former Godby students who spoke of their experiences at the College. Feleccia Moore-Davis, TCC provost, and Sheri Rowland, vice president for student affairs, also spoke at the event.
