PENDLETON — AT&T awarded Tri-County Technical College $5,000 to support the Connect to College (C2C) program.
The Connect to College (C2C) program has evolved to meet the diverse needs of area students by offering academically capable youth between the ages of 17 and 20 the opportunity to simultaneously earn their high school diploma and college credit, up to and including a postsecondary credential.
The first of its kind in South Carolina, C2C is a program for students who, for a variety of reasons, have faced difficult challenges in traditional high school settings.
The program provides students with intensive support services that build confidence and foster their success in a collegiate learning environment.
“It’s personally rewarding to see people on the right path,” Ted Creech, director of external affairs for AT&T, told the C2C graduates. “We, and the folks here at Tri-County, want to see you succeed and reach your dreams.”
