The College and Career Readiness Department of Sandhills Community College recently inducted students into the National Adult Education Honor Society (NAEHS).
The department was granted a Membership Charter of the NAEHS on October 19, 2018. The mission of the NAEHS is to provide meaningful recognition to deserving adult education students, to improve student employment opportunities, develop student ambassadors for local adult education programs, and to create adult education awareness with school administrators and state legislators. Student selection is based on dependable attendance, a cooperative attitude, and work ethic. All adult education students in College and Career Readiness are eligible.
“We believe honoring our students for their hard work and commitment to learning instills confidence and the desire to achieve more,” says Nicole Worley, Director of College and Career Readiness.
“Now, more than ever, when our students are facing so many challenges as a result of COVID-19, we must find ways to celebrate their sense of resilience. Their efforts inspire us and their peers!”
Those recognized on November 6, during a virtual indication ceremony via Zoom were Ebony Atkins, Jessica Burns, Gerald Griffin Currall, Modesta M. Leon, Jamie Lowery, Joseph Ransdell, Leticia Renteria-Alvarado, Abigail Sheppard, Eli Silvestre Olivar, Mary Ann Smith, and Maria Yanet Velasco Alvarez.
Recognized early this year, also during a virtual indication ceremony due to COVID-19 restrictions were Zemen Zaid Al Rasheed, Banu Baki, Ashley Renee Barnett, Alima Darboe, Fiona Tervella Devonish, Norma Diego Manuel, Maria Dolores Guerrero Lira, Catherin Lovelace, Shekem McBurrows, Aresh Mirian, Glenn Riddle, and Ana Vega Cano.
NAEHS members receive a Certificate of Membership, an NAEHS lapel pin, a letter of recommendation for employment, and a letter of recommendation for financial assistance for future educational endeavors. Student NAEHS members never pay dues, their only obligation is to encourage family members and others to take advantage of local adult education programs.
