Vol State Students Commit to Completion

Submitted on October 26, 2011 at 11:56 AM

It's not enough for students to attend college; the goal should be to complete college. While this may seem like a rather obvious idea, in reality completion is tough for many students. Volunteer State Community College students are tackling the issue head-on with a new campus campaign. On Wednesday, students with the Phi Theta Kappa honors society encouraged their fellow students to sign a banner to make a pledge to themselves to commit to completion. It's part of a national program called C4 for Community College Completion Corps. Tennessee lawmakers supported the effort in a series of remarks at the event. Senator Kerry Roberts, Representative Mike McDonald and Representative Debra Maggart attended. After brief speeches many students signed the banner, joining dozens of others in pledging to graduate or transfer to university.

Vol State students will be able to sign the banner and make their commitment at events throughout the school year.
