Alabama Senator Steve Livingston (R District Eight) and Alabama State Representative Nathaniel Ledbetter (R District Twenty-Four) recently presented Northeast Alabama Community College with a check for $25,000 to be used for dual enrollment scholarships in the DeKalb County and Fort Payne school systems.
Dual Enrollment is a program offered through NACC in which students receive credit for high school and college at the same time. “We so much appreciate these funds,” stated NACC President Dr. David Campbell. “Dual Enrollment is an extremely popular program that really gives students a head start on college and their careers. I commend Senator Livingston and Representative Ledbetter for their vision and dedication in helping students.”
The program too saves students and their parents money as well, since NACC students pay half or less the tuition than they would at four-year schools. The scholarships provided by the fund will be based on scholastic achievement and need. Students take college courses taught by instructors with the credentials to teach in college.For more information about the college and dual enrollment opportunities, go to www.nacc.edu or download the free App from the App Store or Google Play Store.
