Sampson Community College held its annual appreciation breakfast meeting Wednesday for counselors, career development coordinators, college advisors and scholars coordinators from schools across Sampson County. The mission of the annual event is to interact and inform about things that affect students, particularly students who are about to leave high school.

“This event is simply one of the best things the college does to enhance our partnership with our two school systems,” said Dr. Paul Hutchins, President of SCC and speaker at the event. “Information shared at this annual meeting promotes better communication, cooperation and most importantly student success.”

Blair Hairr, Dean of Student Services at SCC, hosted the event which included updates about the college’s new website, financial aid and Pell grant information. Featured was Career and College Promise, a program that provides high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a jumpstart on a two-year or four-year degree while still in high school, tuition-free. These students are able to earn college credit while still in high school.

For questions about admissions, financial aid or a particular program, you can call 910-592-8081 or visit sampsoncc.edu.
