Tri-County Community College’s (TCCC) third annual What’s Next Open House gave local high school-aged students the opportunity to find out how TCCC can benefit them while still in high school and beyond on March 17 at the main campus in Peachtree.

“The dedicated staff at Tri-County Community College are here to help you and to answer any and all questions you may have,” said Dr. Donna Tipton-Rogers, president of TCCC, to a packed room of students and parents. “We want to do all we can to ensure your success, both now and later in life, by providing all the resources you may need.”

The event was held in the Crisp Building, where faculty and staff lined the halls and classrooms with displays highlighting their programs for the attendees.

On display for the first time was TCCC’s new associate in fine arts degree, coming as soon as fall 2016, which created audible excitement among the audience.

“I always knew it would generate a lot of interest,” said Ray Kaylor, art instructor at TCCC. “This new program will give students a chance to embrace and explore their creative identities.”

The event also served to showcase the Career and College Promise program at TCCC.

“The Career and College Promise Program offers opportunities for qualified local high school juniors and seniors to enroll in community college courses, tuition free,” said Samantha Major, coordinator of recruitment and retention at TCCC. “It’s also important to make sure freshmen and sophomores are thinking about their options for the future, in addition to upperclassmen.”
