Selena Thornton with PCC-web.jpg

Selena Thornton named 2020 Alumnus of the Year by PCC’s Alumni Partnership

An emotional Thornton accepted the 2020 PCC Alumnus of the Year award, saying, “PCC has been so instrumental in my life … I came into the PCC, enrolled in school, and my life changed... At PCC I found people that believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. That grew into a community of people that I’ve grown to love in Caswell County.”

PCC graduate Kent Cash, Jr. is saving thousands after studying at community college and transferring to NC Promise School

“At PCC, I was able to take classes like history, English, art appreciation, and pre-calculus. All of the credits were accepted at Elizabeth City [State University]. It was really helpful to get started at PCC.” Combining a degree from PCC with an NC Promise School, such as ECSU, ensures that a student will not pay more than $10,000 for his or her entire degree. Learn more about transferring to an NC Promise School in this article or contact PCC at (336) 599-1181.
