“I chose RCC because when I graduated high school, I wasn’t ready to leave home yet, and I had heard that RCC was a good school.”
Josie Alexander of Denton was home schooled through middle and high school, and when she finished she wasn’t quite ready to leave home. So she enrolled in the College Transfer program at Randolph Community College. She will finish her Associate in Arts degree this summer and transfer to Appalachian State University.She cites the RCC recruiter, Kim Cassell, and biology instructor, Ann Cutter, as having a big impact on her life. “Kim was always there when I had tons of questions to ask,” she said. “Also, Ann Cutter’s biology class was very hard, but she was always willing to help you. Not only that, but she is so much fun; honestly, I was very sad when my class with her ended.”
“I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in elementary school,” said Josie, who will major in elementary education. Her time at RCC has allowed her to gain confidence and become more outgoing. “I would say I have benefitted from the Student Government Association the most,” said Josie, who serves as a delegate. “Not only did I meet tons of new people and friends, but it got me more involved in school and with the community.”
