Students enrolled in “Introduction to Teaching” at Paul D. Camp Community College highlighted their work Dec. 11 during an Expo held at the college.

 

“This event gave the aspiring teachers an opportunity to enhance their oratorical and interpersonal skills, as well as showcase their work,” said MeChelle Blunt, instructor.

 

She credited the Expo’s success to the students’ teamwork and eagerness to pursue careers in education.

 

“Every semester and every student is different,” she said. “That’s the beauty of education. The class exposes the students to rigor, research, responsibility, respect and resourcefulness.

Myra Walton, former Franklin City school board member, served as guest speaker. The students were also visited by two former PDCCC education students, Melissa Andre and Lois Gurganus, who are both employed at Southampton County Public Schools.

 

“When one PDCCC student is successful, we all are,” said Blunt. “To have two at the same time is a reason to celebrate.

 

“When we support and develop our own residents, we strengthen our community and our schools.”

 

PDCCC President Paul Wm. Conco also shared remarks during the event.
