LCC’s Coalition for College and Career Readiness (C3R) will hold its annual Summit 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22 at West Campus located at 5708 Cornerstone Drive.
C3R is a coalition comprised of individuals and organizations in the tri-county area of Ingham, Clinton, and Eaton Counties that work together to increase the college and career readiness of high school graduates.
This year’s Summit will focus on projects and activities that have been initiated through action team collaboration and dialogue with the theme of Partnering for Success. Teach. Talent. Thrive. The T3 Movement. Attendees will learn about the work T3 is doing in the region and the Math Action Team will give an update on the two projects that have been completed.
Dr. Toni Glasscoe, associate vice president for external affairs, development, and K-12 operations at LCC said, “The goal of C3R is to assist students who enter LCC lacking the necessary skills to successfully complete college-level coursework. Our work is designed to combat this barrier to success and work to ensure that students arrive at college with a strong foundation in reading, writing, and mathematics.” Glasscoe continued, “With this core framework firmly in place students will be prepared to pursue their goals of a college education and a career.”
The evening’s presenters include Dr. William Barnes, assistant superintendent, Grand Ledge Public Schools and Edythe Copeland, chief executive officer of Capital Area Michigan Works!
