Southwest Tennessee Community College on Saturday (Dec. 10) will host a free information session for people interested in returning to the classroom to complete their college degrees through the Tennessee Reconnect initiative.
Participants will learn how to apply for a scholarship, explore Southwest’s programs and student services, and talk with Tennessee Reconnectors about their student experience.
The information session and a roundtable discussion will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at STCC’s Whitehaven Center, 1234 Finley Road at Elvis Presley Boulevard.
The Reconnect program was announced in 2017 by then-governor Bill Haslam, three years after he unveiled Tennessee Promise for high school graduates.
Both initiatives are part of the state’s higher education Drive to 55 program, launched in 2013 with the goal of getting 55 percent of working-age Tennesseans to complete a college education by 2025.
