Antwan Marcel Ragland credits PCC’s tuition free high school program for propelling his career

In 1995, Antwan participated in what was then Piedmont Community College’s Huskins Program. As a teenager, the prospects of leaving his high school facility mid-day to go to a college was thrilling! “I couldn't be happier with the path that I chose. It's afforded me so much more than I could've ever dreamed of coming from such a small town. I've traveled to countless cities for training, educating, [assisting] weddings, and building my skill-set continuously throughout the span of my career.”

Robertson experiences success after earning nursing degree at PCC

“I found the admission process to be smooth at PCC; and the staff and advisors were very helpful in coordinating my admission." Jessica also stated that the small, intimate classroom settings were vital to her success while working towards obtaining her Associates Degree in Nursing. Coming from a larger University like UNC, she was not familiar with “1 on 1” sessions with instructors. The ability to build that relationship and connect with her instructors helped make Jessica very successful.
