speaker take a selfe with graduates

On Monday, April 24, 2017, Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College (SKYCTC) honored SKY Scholars at the second annual graduation Ceremony on the Colleges main campus. 

SKY Scholars are students who scored into transitional reading (RDG 30) and per the Limited Enrollment Plan of the QEP, are enrolled in RDG 30 and FYE 105 courses during their first semester at SKYCTC. We offer 2 sections of Learning Communities where students have 2 different instructors but the same students in each course. They meet back to back and students are in one classroom for both classes. Students who not enrolled in the Learning Community sections generally have the same students in each course. These paired courses gives these students a chance to build some solid friendships over the course of the semester via class assignments and collaborative activities. 

The purpose of this ceremony is to celebrate their achievements during their first semester at SKYCTC and encourage them to continue their academic journey until they walk across the stage a second time for their chosen credential! 

SKY Scholars recognized at this year’s ceremony were: 

SKY Scholar Valedictorians - Raiven Hite, Jonathan Gill, Farheen Komal & Raleigh Weeks
