Applications are now being accepted for Henderson Community College s Summer Enrichment Program. The program is June 14 through June 18 with classes staring at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 12:00 noon. Transportation to Henderson Community College is provided daily along with lunch.

The application deadline is May 18. Applications are available in the guidance office at Henderson North Middle School, Henderson South Middle School and Union County Middle School. Parents must complete the application and return it to the school counselor. The school counselor will submit it to HCC.

The Summer Enrichment Program is designed as a one-week non-residential program for middle and junior high school African- American students from Henderson and Union Counties, said Bill Dixon, HCC Director of Cultural Diversity. Students are offered enrichment opportunities in math, reading, science, college preparations, learning styles, career explorations and personal/social developments. The program prepares minority students to be successful in high school and college level work and to persist to high school and college graduation.

Dixon goes on to say the goal of the program is for students to recognize the importance of high school graduation and post-secondary education. This is achieved through culturally-based experiences in a curriculum designed to enhance self-esteem.
