New Century Scholars Class of 2024
Communities In Schools of NWNC held the New Century Scholars Induction Ceremony for the class of 2024 on Sunday, September 30th at Wilkes Community College. 24 sixth grade students from all over Wilkes County were admitted into the New Century Scholars program at the end of the 2017-18 school year. Counselors from each middle school choose students who show great promise and motivation to participate in the CIS program. At the end of the program, all New Century Scholars will receive a 2 year scholarship to Wilkes Community College, made possible by individual donors and community businesses. Each student has committed to complete 10 hours of community service every year until graduation in an effort to give back to the community that gave to them. Throughout the program, all students will be followed by the NCS Program Coordinator, Vickie Call. She will ensure they are on the right path academically, provide necessary services to be sure they succeed and surround the students with a community of support.
