Increasing teacher effectiveness is fundamental to improving public education.

N.C. Center for the Advancement of Teaching conducts interdisciplinary, topic-specific seminars for pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers.
THOMASVILLE – It’s never too early to start thinking about college options, and Davidson County Community College is giving the community a chance to see what the college has to offer with an Open House from 9 a.m. until noon on March 8 in the Brinkley Gym on Davidson County Community College’s Davidson Campus, located at 297 DCCC Road in Thomasville. The event is open to the community.
Included in the Open House will be opportunities to tour the campus and meet faculty, as well as the chance to explore career options and programs, transfer options, and also learn about how to get qualified for industries that are hiring in the region.
The event will also provide rising ninth through 12th graders information about innovative high school programs, including Career and College Promise, Yadkin Valley Career Academy and Early College.
“Open house events like these are incredibly valuable to our entire community,” says Kevin Lineberry, associate dean of Student Success at DCCC. “Not only does it provide great information about college, but it also allows exploration of the many affordable options available at DCCC. With more than 50 degree programs available on our campus, we truly have a lot to offer those who are interested in higher education.”
To learn more about the event, contact Jenny Ferguson, Enrollment Services recruiter and counselor, at 336-249-8186, Ext. 6258 or email Jenny_Ferguson@davidsonccc.edu.
