Statistics show the surest way for anyone to land a job in their chosen field is to finish college and earn a degree or certificate.
And that's exactly what students at LRSC are promising to do by signing a mass pledge to complete their degrees and certifications before leaving community college for transfer or to enter the job market.
On November 19th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, LRSC students signed a completion pledge in the Student Union, part of a national community college movement. The event was hosted by the college's Phi Theta Kappa chapter. Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society members are serving as the student arm of The Community College Completion Corps, a national education initiative. Brigitte Freschette, director of counseling, will be a guest speaker.
Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, headquartered in Jackson, Mississippi, is the largest honor society in higher education with 1,250 chapters on college campuses in all 50 of the United States, Canada, Germany, the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, the British Virgin Islands, the United Arab Emirates and U.S. territorial possessions. More than two million students have been inducted since its founding in 1918, with approximately 100,000 students inducted annually.
