PA Community Colleges To Celebrate College Completion Challenge Week Oct. 19

The bipartisan Senate and House Community College Caucuses and the PA Community College Commission, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society Chapters at community colleges and other partners will be celebrating College Completion Challenge Week at the Capitol in Harrisburg.
On Monday, October 19 in the Main Rotunda of the Capitol, representatives of the Senate and House Community College Caucuses, Harrisburg Area Community College, Phi Theta Kappa National Honor Society and the PA Business Council will hold a press conference to mark the event.
Statistics show the surest way for anyone to land a job in their chosen field is to finish college and earn a degree or certificate.
And that's exactly what students at Pennsylvania’s community colleges are promising to do --  pledging to complete their associate degrees or certificates before leaving community college to transfer or to enter the workforce.
Administrators, faculty and staff have also been asked to sign the pledge, committing themselves to do whatever they can to facilitate completion of student credentials.
Phi Theta Kappa chapters have orchestrated more than 84 events at 23 community college campuses around the state throughout the week.
