RVEC students talk about experiences during trustee meeting
 
WELDON, N.C. – The Halifax Community College (HCC) Board of Trustees met on April 29. During the meeting, two Roanoke Valley Early College (RVEC) seniors talked about their experiences at the College.

RVEC student Tronjay Davis, 18, is the son of Katrina Davis and Calvin Manley. He will graduate on Saturday, May 10 with an Associate in Arts and a certificate in paralegal technology. Davis plans to attend the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Greensboro this fall.

"I would describe my overall experience at HCC and RVEC as an intimate opportunity to learn new things and explore my career options," said Davis.

RVEC student Khiyah Jones, 17, is the daughter of Danny and Tuwana Jones. She will graduate with an Associate in Arts and an Associate in Science from HCC. Jones plans to attend UNC-Charlotte in the fall.

"I would say that this early college experience has been very unique and unforgettable. I am appreciative of the opportunity that RVEC has allowed for the youth in our area," said Jones.

Twenty-two out of 41 high school seniors in RVEC will receive their associate’s degree or certificate during HCC’s commencement set for May 10 before they graduate from high school. This is the first class to graduate from the school.

Some $655,000 in scholarships has been awarded to 18 graduating RVEC students.

Thirty-five out of 41 seniors have been accepted by a four-year college or university. Several students have received multiple college acceptance letters. So far, 73 college acceptance letters have been received by these students.

Of the 22 students graduating from HCC and RVEC, seven students will receive an Associate in Arts and a degree/certificate. Four more students will receive certificates only. Another 11 students will receive an Associate in Arts only.
