RVEC graduates second class of students
 
WELDON, N.C. – Roanoke Valley Early College (RVEC) graduated the Class of 2015 on May 22 on the campus of Halifax Community College (HCC). This was the second graduating class for RVEC. Thirty-six students graduated with seventeen students receiving an AA or Certificate from HCC.

Director of Client Services with New Schools Project Dee McKinzie was the speaker for the 2015 class. Mr. McKinzie message to the class was to think of the Roanoke Valley Early College as a starting block for running a race. Starting blocks will not allow you to move backward only forward. RVEC has prepared you to move forward.

100 percent of the graduates have been accepted into 4-year colleges or universities.

RVEC opened in 2009 as a result of the partnership between HCC, Weldon City Schools and the North Carolina New Schools Project. Students matriculate through a rigorous curriculum and have the opportunity to earn a high school diploma, an associate's degree and/or two years of transferable credits to a four-year college or university.
