As the new year approaches so does the Spring 2022 semester at Piedmont Community College (PCC). To prepare for new students this upcoming semester, PCC added two student success coaches, working evenings and weekends, to accommodate more work and life schedules of those interested in advancing their education.

These two new success coaches are focused on making the application and registration process as simple and seamless as possible for students. They will help prospective students with the admissions process, applications, financial aid, and residency determination; both future and current students can utilize them while registering for classes the next semester; and current and former students can ask for help requesting a transcript.

As PCC services both Caswell County and Person County, there is an Evening & Weekend Student Success Coach to aid current and prospective students for each, available Monday-Thursday until 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

Max Matthews, a graduate of Elon University, assists students in Person County. He said working with community college students and helping them become self-sufficient and find success runs in the family and is a great privilege for him.

“My father worked in higher education helping with financial aid and admissions at an HBCU (Historically Black College/University),” Matthews said. “For me to continue his work, to make an impact and help anyone who wants to further their skills and career to find success in life is a personal pleasure, and I feel like I’m making him proud.”

Pricilla Morrow, who has 22 years of experience in education, is passionate about working with community college students. She hopes to help students excel while they obtain their education and search for a career.

“I waited until my latter years to earn my bachelor’s and master’s degrees, just earning my Master’s in Educational Foundation in 2020,” Morrow said. “I hope that I can use my personal testimony, that it’s never too late to earn or further your education, to help guide our current and prospective students to accomplish their goals; then see them graduate, take on a lasting career, and fulfill their hearts desires.”

PCC is currently closed for winter break and will reopen on January 3, 2022. Late registration for the Spring 2022 semester is January 3 and 4, with classes beginning January 5. Prospective students can begin the application process at piedmontcc.edu/apply.
