NCC & N-RMPS Hold Career & Technical Education Showcase


On October 25, 2012 from 5:30-7:30pm, Nash Community College (NCC) and Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools (N-RMPS) will host eighth through twelfth grade students and their parents at the Career & Technical Education Open House.

“The relationship between Nash-Rocky Mount Schools and NCC is a perfect collaboration of deliberate actions to prepare students and adults to become career and college ready. The Showcase is an example of this great relationship that exists,” N-RMPS Director of Career & Technical Education Pam Lewis said.

Attendees will explore classes that can be taken in Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools that align with classes and programs offered at Nash Community College. Held in the Nash Community College Brown Auditorium, the event will give students and parents an opportunity to learn more about the college application process, financial aid, academic programs, career options and more.

“This event proves to be successful annually with over 900 students and parents coming through the doors in NCC’s Brown Auditorium. The event is the epitome of a successful relationship between educational institutions and the business community,” NCC Associate Dean for Student and Enrollment Services Wil van der Meulen said.

Over 86 tables representing Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools’ classes, Nash Community College programs of study and other educational and business partners will give attendees a taste of the programs and classes offered through each entity. In addition, representatives from local businesses and industries will be there to share more about their organizations and the importance of a skilled and educated workforce.
