On Friday, January 28, State Technical College of Missouri (STC) welcomed 27 counselors throughout the state of Missouri for the STC Counselor Forum. Those in attendance included A+ Coordinators, high school counselors and a career center counselor.
The goal of the forum was to provide counselors an opportunity to network and learn more about State Tech in an effort to help students with their college decisions.
In addition to a full campus tour, State Tech faculty and staff provided several presentations pertaining to initiatives unique to State Tech such as future drug screening and the success of AJA@™STC. Other topics included the A+ Program, articulation agreements, career services and upcoming events available on campus, such as Computer Professions on Demand (CPOD) for high school students and Mother-Daughter Construction Day for girls in grade school.
Dr. Donald Claycomb, State Tech president, addressed the counselors during lunch and shared initiatives State Tech has implemented to ensure a student’s success while attending State Tech.
The forum concluded with the awarding of door prizes, including two tuition waivers valued at $1500 for counselors and coordinators to award to the student of each recipient’s choice.
Rebecca Fallon, college advisor, and Michelle Ray, counselor, at Crawford County R-I in Bourbon, MO received the $500 tuition waiver. Lisa Nevels, counselor at Lexington R-V in Lexington, MO won the $1,000 tuition waiver.
With more than 35 programs, State Technical College of Missouri is Missouri’s only public two-year technical college with a statewide mission. STC prepares students for profitable employment and a life of learning. STC has three locations in Linn, Mexico and Jefferson City.
