Student Support Services (SSS) participants and College officials were pumped after hearing motivational words from guest speaker Dominic Brown, meteorologist for WTKR’s news Channel 3. “This program always presents an opportunity to get our students motivated and energized for a new academic year,” said Dr. Hyler Scott, associate professor and counselor with SSS who sponsored this session on the Hobbs Suffolk Campus.
The goal of SSS, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, is to increase the probability that students will succeed in the completion of their educational goals. The program offers free tutoring, counseling; cultural and educational enrichment, as well as assistance to those planning to transfer to a four-year college or university.
