IMPACT This Year

July 2014

In July, students participated in the summer session for IMPACT Academy. IMPACT Academy provided participants with the opportunity to prepare for the fall semester by offering 2 workshops that addressed effective study and note taking skills. Additionally, participants met with the Director of the new Advising Center, Dr. Malinda Daniel and discussed the importance of developing an academic plan and understanding the role of students in the advising process.
UCPS, 8th grade assistant principal Mr. Maxie Johnson, Jr., from East Union Middle School delivered the midday energizer encouraging the students to utilize the resources available at SPCC and the importance of getting to know their instructors. Additionally, Mr. Johnson facilitated an interactive discussion regarding decision making and the impact their daily decisions will have on their academic careers.
