Student Support Services Program Annual Student Recognition Ceremonial Event
The Student Support Services Program (SSSP) will hold its 20th annual Student Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, February 7, from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center's Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium. This event serves to honor SSSP students for their academic achievements. Director Florence D. Johnson and her staff are proud to recognize 70 participants who are carrying a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or higher. SSSP is a Title IV (TRIO) federally funded project that operates under the umbrella of the Research Foundation and University College. The program goals are retention, graduation, and good academic standing. The program is designed to provide opportunities for academic achievement, cultural enrichment, and tutorial assistance as well as to motivate students toward successful completion of their degrees. For the past 20 years, this program has been proud to celebrate the success and persistence of all students being recognized.
A buffet-style reception at 1:00 p.m. will be catered by Emerson Commons Culinary School (atrium, upper level). This event is not open to the campus community. Faculty and staff members who have not confirmed their attendance should contact Armeta Bernard, administrative assistant, ext. 4042, today in order to confirm their reservations.
