License prep course

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is registering students for the License Preparation Course for Electrical Contractors, for students who have completed 8,000 working hours under an N.C. licensed electrical contractor and are ready to obtain their licenses. The class will meet 6 to 9 p.m. on Mondays, July 15 through Dec. 9, at the college’s Cabarrus Business & Technology Center (CBTC). The course fee is $175. Advanced registration is required.

Space is limited, and advanced registration is required. The CBTC is at 660 Concord Parkway N., in Concord. For more information and to register, call 704-216-7222 or e-mail jan.corriher-smith@rccc.edu.


Conversational Spanish

Rowan-Cabarrus is offering a new class in conversational Spanish for real estate professionals.

The class is being taught by Pearlie Kluttz, who has taught conversational Spanish classes for nearly 15 years. “As more Hispanics come to the area, the percentage that stay grows as well. Hispanics who are now tenants will soon start buying homes,” said Kluttz.

Kluttz is hoping the conversational Spanish class will help remove that barrier and help real estate professionals tap what appears to be a growing market.

This class emphasis will be on basic vocabulary, useful and common phrases, and practical expressions used in everyday work for real estate professionals. The class will run Mondays from 3-5 p.m. beginning Sept. 9 and running through Oct. 28 at the college’s South Campus (Bldg. 2000, Room 205) in Concord.

Fall registration

Fall registration at Rowan-Cabarrus is under way and ongoing through Aug. 14.

Students may apply online at http://www.rccc.edu/admissions/. Registration is online, but the college provides weekly on-campus support sessions to assist with the enrollment process (http://bit.ly/WebAdvisorSupport). Classes begin Monday, Aug. 19.

“If you or your child are considering attending Rowan-Cabarrus, we encourage you to take advantage of an upcoming Walk and Talk Wednesday to learn more about why the college is a terrific choice for a great education at a great price,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of RCCC.

Walk and Talk Wednesday is an opportunity for prospective students to visit Rowan-Cabarrus. There are generally small group tours of the campus led by a staff member. The next Walk and Talk Wednesday is July 10, from 6-7 p.m. at the college’s North Campus in Salisbury and the college’s South Campus in Concord.

Camp Creativity

The college is expanding its annual Literary & Fine Arts Festival focus with Camp Creativity.

Camp Creativity serves as an alternative to the traditional summer sports programs. The one-week camp helps students gain self-confidence, learn hands-on skills and apply their creativity. Camp Creativity is geared toward participants ages of 8 to 14.

The college’s English and fine arts faculty have organized this multi-disciplinary summer arts camp that blends together creative writing, drama, spoken word, music and art.

“We are so excited about Camp Creativity! Motivated youth will be given opportunities to explore the visual, performing and literary arts while reaching for their true creative potential,” said Jenn Selby, chair of the college’s fine arts program.

Taught by professional artists and instructors, the camp is structured to provide a broad spectrum of artistic experiences. During this week, students will focus on arts and crafts, writing, games, music, theater and light recreational activities.

The camp will run the week of July 29, and activities are scheduled in multiple classrooms at the Rowan-Cabarrus South Campus in Concord. Monday through Thursday sessions will meet 8 a.m.-4 p.m. while the Friday session is scheduled from 8 a.m.-noon and will include a showcase for parents.

Early drop off (7:30 a.m.) and late pick-up (5 p.m.) is available for extra fees ($50 extra for early drop-off all week; $75 extra for late pick-up all week or $100 for early drop-off and late pick-up), but the college must be notified in advance of those individuals taking advantage of these services.

The camp is limited to a maximum of 30 participants. Participants will be divided into three groups of 10 (organized by age group/grade level). The week will also include full group participation for selected activities. Each group will participate in three stations per day on a two-hour rotation.

Early registration before June 28 is $175. After this date, registration will be $200. The registration fee includes snacks, art supplies, creative writing journal and tote bag. Students will need to bring their own lunches/drinks each day. At the end of the week, students will have products to take home and display.

Those interested should contact Jenny Beaver, jenny.beaver@rccc.edu or 704-216-3797 or Jenn Selby, jenn.selby@rccc.edu.
