WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College has organized an event for home school parents and students interested in learning more about N.C. Career & College Promise (CCP) educational opportunities.

Titled “H.O.M.E. with PCC,” the program will take place July 13, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Space is limited to 50 participants, and pre-registration is required.

“This event is for home school families in and around Pitt County to learn more about the programs and services PCC has to offer their students, as well as the benefits of dual enrollment,” said PCC Director of High School Programs Natasha Worthington. “We felt it was important to engage more home school families and provide them with an opportunity for exploration they don’t typically receive prior to enrollment.”

After greetings from Worthington, a welcome by President Lawrence L. Rouse, and an event overview by Director of Recruitment and First-Year Experience John Carrere, “H.O.M.E. with PCC” will feature a short CCP presentation from the perspective of past and current home school families. Attendees will then have the opportunity to visit Pitt classrooms to speak with faculty members about their respective programs. They may also choose to participate in a session led by PCC Instructor Donald Joyner on “Family Support for College Success.”

Academic programs scheduled to participate in next week’s event include HVAC, Automotive Systems, Biotechnology, Computer Integrated Machining, Electrical Systems, Cybersecurity, Welding and several health sciences curricula.

The event will conclude with details on PCC student support services and a question-and-answer session.

The registration deadline for “H.O.M.E. with PCC” is July 11. More details are available by emailing Worthington at nmworthington301@my.pittcc.edu or calling (252) 493-7411.
