SANFORD – Spring registration for Central Carolina Community College transfer classes begins Monday. The registration process runs until Christmas break on December 16.
Heather McKenzie is an advisor for Lee County High School from CCCC. She works with CCCC and helps the students at LCHS by monitoring them, guiding them to where they are trying to get to and providing them with help.
“I help juniors and seniors that can take the enrollment classes at colleges,” McKenzie explained. “I help them do their resign progress, monitor their grades, answer any college questions, help them through the college process.”
McKenzie guides students to the next level that they need to go to college and even helps them prepare for life itself. Students can begin the program in the 11th grade.
“You can start junior year, as long you have a 2.8 gpa,” McKenzie said. “You can take classes your junior and senior year.”
Sebastian Avila is a junior in the program who has been in the class since late August. Avila is taking classes to prepare him for his future and to help guide himself for a better life.
“I’m taking this class to prepare myself for the future in college,” Avila said.
Avila wants to attend CCCC and transfer to a university. He thinks that is the smart way for college.
“I do want to go to CCCC, then transfer somewhere bigger I think,” Avila said. “As of right now I’m going for two years. It does prepare me, it gives me an idea of what i’m going to be experies in the future.”
McKenzie encourages all eligible students to register for classes because of the benefits the program offers.
“Everybody has the opportunity to [register],” McKenzie said. “I love advising them. It’s my favorite thing.”
Classes begin in January and new students are encouraged to register.
