My name is Dr. Collins, and I am the Nash Community College Career Coach that serves Southern Nash. Please review the attached information about the Nash Community College Career and College Promise Program. I would love to speak with you about this program! You may schedule a meeting time with me on Tuesdays at SN by contacting your high school counselor or me. I look forward to sharing this wonderful opportunity with you!
Uniquely enough, North Carolina is the only state to have a Governor Page Program. Established in 1973, the Governor’s Page Program gives high school students from all over North Carolina the opportunity to come to Raleigh for a week of hands-on participation in their state government through touring and listening to a range of speakers such as Supreme Justices and Deputy Commissioners. There will also be an opportunity to meet with the Governor himself.
In addition, students will also be creating their own volunteer project to bring back to their communities. We want the Page Program to represent North Carolina’s diverse communities and help inspire a new generation of leaders. While in this role, I am hoping to increase diversity by expanding knowledge of the program to all counties in the state, as I believe this is an opportunity that should be presented to all students.
Each applicant must be a North Carolina high school student in good academic standing between the ages of sixteen and eighteen years old. Pages are selected to serve for a term of four days. If you know of any students at your school who would be interested in serving, please pass this along to them. In addition, feel free to pass along to other teachers or school administration to spread the word.
This link includes a more in depth view of the program as well as the application process for students. 2020 dates are now available online. Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions, and thank you in advance!
