Fort Scott, KS -On Wednesday, Jan. 29th, Fort Scott Community College (FSCC) hosted a group of 35 students from Neosho County’s Upward Bound program. The students represented several high schools from our neighboring county.
Upward Bound students had a chance to tour the campus, meet with members of the faculty and administration, and receive information about many of the programs offered through FSCC.
“Most of my family has attended Neosho Community College, but FSCC has a great vibe. I want to know more about studying teaching from Fort Scott Community College,” said Humbolt High School senior Kaitelyn Kerns. “I like what I have seen so far.”
After visiting the FSCC main campus, the students were treated to a tour of Fort Scott’s Cosmetology school, an occupational program being considered by several students. Students were excited to hear about plans for the cosmetology program, currently located on Wall and National, to return to the main campus at FSCC.
Following the tour, members of Upward Bound had lunch at Papa Don’s and visited the Lowell Milken Center before heading to FSCC Harley Davidson.
“This was a great group to have visit, and it was a pleasure to show off our campus and the Fort Scott downtown,” said Tom Gorman, Fort Scott Community College Director of Admissions. “Between January and March, we are expecting around 400 students to visit our campus and learn about the many benefits of being a greyhound!”
All visitors to FSCC receive information about FSCC, including a visitor’s guide highlighting local business.
“When students select Fort Scott Community College, it is important that they realize they will be a part of a great community that extends far beyond the FSCC campus,” shared Gorman. “We work hard to accentuate the importance of the partnership between FSCC and the city of Fort Scott.”
