Local schools recognized with HCC Presidential Partnership awards

 Halifax Community College President, Dr. Ervin V. Griffin Sr. recognized recipients of the third annual Presidential Partnership Award during commencement exercises, May 9. The award recognizes organizations that assist HCC in fulfilling its mission.

In 1988, the state board of education and community college boards adopted an official statement of purpose for the Huskins Cooperative Program. The program provides for the enrichment of high school students through college level academic, technical and advanced vocational courses not otherwise available to them. Local administration boards and school boards have established cooperative programs in the areas they serve to provide college courses to qualified high school students and credits awarded to students with the successful completion of coursework. HCC has enrolled more than 700 high school students since fall 2006 in this program.

Glenn Wiggs of Halifax Academy, Geraldine Middleton of Halifax County Schools, William Whitehurst of Hobgood Academy, Dr. Eric Bracey of Northampton County Schools, Dennis Sawyer of Roanoke Rapids Graded School District, and Dr. Eli Bracey of Weldon City Schools were presented the award for partnering with HCC in the Huskins Cooperative Program.
