Study shows RCC Success Coaches make a difference

Sherrod WEB
Thanks to having a Success Coach, Earnestine Sherrod is closer to earning her Randolph Community College diploma.

ASHEBORO (April 9, 2021)

Earnestine Sherrod isn’t your typical college student. Then again, Randolph Community College isn’t your typical college. The 50-year-old student has had an uphill battle, emotionally and physically, from food insecurity to multiple surgeries on her feet to asthma and diabetes. None of that is keeping her from earning her degree at RCC.

“I graduated [high school] with a certificate because I completed 12th grade but I felt bad because my brother and sisters had their diplomas, but I didn’t have mine,” said Sherrod, whose daughter, Danielle, also attends RCC. “I want to be able to show something.”

Along the way, Sherrod has had a constant cheerleader in her corner: Pam Wiggins — one of two Success Coaches at RCC, who, along with fellow coach Dr. Jae Archer, is making a marked difference in not only keeping students in class, but also making sure underserved student populations stay in school.
