PCC Hosts Third Straight ‘Signing Day’ Event


WINTERVILLE—For the third consecutive year, Pitt Community College hosted a National Career and Technical Education Letter-of-Intent Signing Day program to honor students entering technical fields.

Similar to an NCAA athletic signing ceremony, the event featured area high school students preparing for college enrollment this fall signing letters-of-intent to attend PCC before donning Pitt ball caps as a symbolic exclamation point.

In addition to students preparing to enter PCC Construction and Industrial Technology (CIT) programs, the Feb. 15 ceremony included participation by future Business Division enrollees as well. Representatives from local business and industry were also on hand to show the signees their support.

“I’m happy the college could host this program once again and even more excited that our Business Division was able to participate for the very first time,” said PCC CIT Dean Mark Faithful. “This event continues to grow each year, and I’m hopeful even more PCC academic divisions can join us in 2019.”

PCC was one of more than 60 technical institutions across the country to host a signing day program Thursday and the only one in North Carolina. The events, which were sponsored by the National Coalition of Certification Centers, were linked together by live simulcasts that aired nationwide.
