Student Success Center and TRIO

Tutoring: The TRIO Student Support Services Program and the Student Success Center work closely together to provide academic tutoring services for all the FSCC students.

Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., professional and student peer tutors are available for face-to-face or virtual sessions. We provide tutoring in a variety of areas, including College Algebra, English 101, History 101, Computer Science 101, and many others. The professional tutors specialize in General Biology, Math and help with other areas including proof reading and editing papers. Tutors advise students on how to prepare and study for tests in many subject areas. Our peer tutors are available to help students as needed throughout the semester. They work one-on-one or in groups with students. A total of 263 students took advantage of the free tutoring program in fall 2021 and spring 2022. Between the two professional tutors and five student peer tutors, the total number of hours tutored were 755.23 for 2021-22 academic year.


Action Plan: Continue offering free tutoring services to the students and encourage more students to take advantage of the program.

A survey was utilized after the event where 70.5% of the students agreed that the event was meaningful and 82.3% would recommend the event to other students.

Student Nursing Organization

The 15th Annual Care to Share Fall Festival: Hollie Souza, Student Nursing Organization sponsor reached out to Lavetta Simmons Care to Share organization to see if they needed help with their annual fall festival event. Care to Share is a local nonprofit organization that helps cancer patients and their families. SNO was able to actively engage in the event by setting up for the event, running games, rides and the pumpkin patch. With SNO’s support, Care to Share was able to raise more than $10,000 for local cancer patients in 6 hours.


Greyhound Pantry: SNO contributed to the Greyhound Pantry by purchasing $300 in supplies. Greyhound Pantry is the college’s food and clothing pantry run by President’s Ambassadors. The SNO officers were tasked with purchasing nutritious snacks and personal hygiene items. The nursing students were especially excited about this project because they were able to provide necessary items to their fellow students.


Kids Fair: SNO partnered with Community Relations Committee to offer a free Kids Fair for the children in our community. SNO purchased 100 teddy bears to give to children who did not have one. Students enjoyed roleplaying scenarios, including how to care for your teddy and how to dress a wound. Nursing students practiced their professional, leadership, and clinical skills such as head-to-toe assessment and pediatric care.


Action Plan: SNO will continue to help with this event in the future and find more events where the students will have the opportunity to be involved in the community. SNO members will seek similar events by contacting the Fort Scott Chamber, local organizations, and community members.

Dream Big Little Ones: 18 FSCC carpentry students participated in building bunk beds for a non-profit organization, Dream Big Little Ones to provide beds for families in need. Director of CTEC reached out to Dream Big Little Ones after finding out that the cost of bunk beds was a hardship for the organization. The students built 12 bunk beds and painted them. The materials were provided through private donations. Director of Dream Big Little Ones was grateful and very complimentary of our students’ willingness to give back to the community.


Action Plan: Director of CTEC will reach out to other organizations so that students have an opportunity to enhance their skills while giving back to the community.




Decisions Workshop/Cool Speak: TRIO celebrated First Generation Day by hosting a Good Decision workshop for students. Juan Cangas from CooLSpeak was invited to the campus to give a presentation on his life, decisions he made, and how he was able to turn his life around despite some of those decisions.  He challenged our students and encouraged them to find their own motivation to succeed and make positive choices in their lives. He was a first-generation student. He spoke to 210 students and 26 faculty and staff the benefits of going and staying in school. The students interacted well with Juan during his presentation and few students spoke with him after the presentation about their lives. A survey was utilized at the end of the presentation and the results were encouraging: 56 students participated in the survey, 89% of the students rated his performance either 9 or 10, and will recommend Juan to others.


Action Plan: TRIO will continue to provide more opportunities for students to be engaged in school.
