WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Pitt Community College’s VISIONS Career Development and Scholarship program is looking for applications from junior high school students.

It’s offered to students attending one of Pitt County’s six high schools.
They must have a grade point average of 2.0-3.2 and have a need for financial aid.
Coordinators say covid makes the visions program more vital.
Katelynn Speas is a PCC VISIONS High School Coordinator and she explains, “2020 has thrown a wrench in so many things. We want our students and future students to see VISIONS as an opportunity not only to enhance what they already have but to build on that skill set so that they can be successful after graduation.”
