PCC Reaches out to Area Latino Population

PCC hosted an event in the Goess Student Center earlier this month in an effort to reach out to the area’s Latino population about programs and services.

WINTERVILLE—Pitt Community College welcomed 32 families to campus this month for the college’s 1st Annual Latino Day.

Organized by PCC’s Outreach Coalition, which is comprised of the PCC TRiO: Educational Opportunity Center and various college partners, the Sept. 19 program was part of Pitt’s effort to reach out to the area’s Latino population about programs and services.

"We are so excited to have been able to come together with our off-campus partner, Juvencio Rocha-Peralta, who is the executive director of AMEXCAN, to offer this unique opportunity to the Latino community,” said PCC TRiO Director LaTonya Nixon.

“Thirty-two families received valuable information, and we are hopeful that more potential students will take advantage of the amazing opportunities at PCC.”

In addition to program displays set up in the Goess Student Center, a number of PCC employees, including representatives from a variety of continuing education programs, were on hand to discuss educational options with attendees. PCC President G. Dennis Massey, Vice President of Student Services Donald Spell and Continuing Education Dean Kristin Braswell were also in attendance to show their support.
