A message from the president

Dr. Stan Sidor, President, South Piedmont Community CollegeThe famous baseball coach Yogi Berra once said, “If you don’t know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.” The decision to go to college says that you have made a decision on a destination and recognize that the shortest path to success is by continuing your education.

Why do people choose to attend South Piedmont Community College? Let me give a few of the reasons:

  • More than 90 programs, which include high quality transfer programs and articulations designed to help you succeed at the university level
  • Relevant and current workforce programs taught with state-of-the-art equipment by highly qualified faculty
  • Early College, GED and Adult High School programs that will put you on the path to success, all supported by friendly staff and faculty.

So how do you get started? Make an appointment with a counselor to develop your pathway and create a plan by assessing your interests and aptitudes. Meet with a Financial Aid representative to develop a financial plan that will lay the foundation to be successful.

South Piedmont Community College is a comprehensive community college, one of 58 in the North Carolina System. We are affordable. We are convenient with online classes and locations in Monroe, Polkton and Wadesboro. We care about our students and the communities we serve.

I want to leave you with a final quote from Benjamin Franklin: “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” Feel free to call or email me for assistance in achieving your goals at SPCC.

Stanley M. Sidor, Ed.D.
