GREENVILLE—Pitt Community College’s Student Development Services Division is teaming up with East Carolina University on an admissions and recruitment event in West Greenville on Dec. 4.

The event, which will showcase PCC academic, career and continuing education/workforce development programs, is scheduled to take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Lucille W. Gorham Intergenerational Community Center (IGCC) on Ward Street.

“Community colleges are not only a viable path to a four-year degree, but they also address ‘workforce needs’ most effectively by bringing trained graduates into positions currently available in their region,” said Maurice Jordan, ECU’s IGCC Family Coordinator.

Travis Kinsey, director of TRiO Programs at Pitt, said PCC has made recruiting nontraditional and first-generation college students a top priority, adding that the college has “a variety of academic programs and resources to assist them throughout their educational journey.”

In addition to connecting with faculty and staff at Pitt, PCC Vice President of Student Development Services Johnny Smith says the IGCC event will offer participants assistance with completing college applications and Free Application for Federal Student Aid forms.

“We look forward to showing our local community all of the great opportunities offered here at Pitt Community College,” Smith said.
